Yes I tried the film several times. I like the look but it did not replace my favorite film Delta 400 or Tmax 400.

Here is one example with the Cinestill, developed with X-Tol 1:1

This was from respooled rolls from Photo Warehouse in Oxnard, CA. Leica M4, Voigtlander 35 2.0 Ultron, 022 filter Kodak 5222 XX @ ISO 200, developed in HC-110 Dilution B. It's a nice film, good tonal range and easy to work with. I can see why some buy a 400' roll and use it as their only film. There are a couple of extensive videos on YouTube that provide deeper insight of how to expose and develop this film.Mostly, I prefer the t gain films like TMax or Delta.

I really like Kodak Double-X, which is what Cinestill is selling. It's got a very good latitude and I've shot it att EI100 to 1000 with good results.

Here's another at EI800 in HC110H, which shows the grain better:

Personally I don't buy the rebranded stuff because it robs Kodak of money which I dislike. I'd personally rather see them survive than Cinestill. And almost 10 USD for a 36-roll is extortionate when you can buy a 400-foot roll from Kodak for 283 USD plus taxes, handling and shipping. One gets more than 70 rolls from a 400-foot roll. I have an Alden bulk loader that takes 200-foot rolls but splitting it into four 100-foot rolls is as easy.

One of the things I particularly like is that it dries flat, which Tri-X doesn't for me.

      My main goal is shoot B&W (but not only) on digital cameras.
      Trying to choose beetwen a 1962 Summaron f/2.8 and a 1964 Summicron V1, both look in very nice condition, the price diference is 700€.
      From what I`ve read here, these would be my favourite options. Opinions welcome, considering the price diference too.
      Thanks

      I got a Light Lens Lab v2LC 35mm f2 Summicron Copy last week
      Overall, the Lenses share similar tone to Leica Summicrion 35/2, with good enough micro contrast, sharp in a relative cheap price level. 
      I like using color pic more than BW pic when using v2LC. 
      For me, the main difference between Leica Summicron , which can provide a more rich image texture and 3D rendering. But Light lens Labs 35/2 did a good job at this price level.

      Light Lens Lab v2LC Summicron 35mm f2

      Got my first ever Leica M body last year. It's a M2. It came bundled with a Summicron 50mm F2 Collapsible. I'm really enjoying this combo, but I'm a 35mm shooter.
      I've found a Summaron 35mm 3.5 for sale in my country, for a decent price. It's serial number is the following: 1176436.
      However, I know that users have trouble defining their lens models, because they were produced in a large numbers.
      I've checked this one's number on a lot of different sources and foruns, but I failed on identifying it.
      The weird part is that checking through this website: https://reddotcamera.net/leica/serial-number-tool/ and in this page: https://www.l-camera-forum.com/leica-wiki.en/index.php/Summaron_f%3D_3.5_cm_1:3.5
      The information I have is that this lens is identified as a Summicron 50mm f/2, build in the year 1954 and a Summicron 5 cm 1:2 (M), respectively.
      Why is that? Has anyone here ever seen one of these? I wanted this to be the M2 version (to activate the 35mm framelines) but I have no clue what this all means.
      Any guesses are welcome.
      Thanks!
