Many people know the info I'm providing, probably Joel, as well, but in 
case others do not here goes:

Fujichrome Sensia II 100 is the identical film to Fujichrome Astia.

There is some conjecture that Astia has a slightly thicker film base, 
but I have been unable to either see it or verify it.

Unless brand name provides you with better self esteem, and therefore 
makes you a better photographer, if you are a regular user of these 
films, you can have considerable savings by buying the "consumer 
version" (Sensia II).  I have yet to note any difference in emulsions 
whatsoever.

Fuji is so good with their color balance controls,. I'd be surprised the 
films are handled any differently at the manufacturing level or 
splitting factory.
