Are you certain that Elitechrome 200 is the consumer variant of E200? I have
tried both and they seemed to be different beyond the usual distinctions
between consumer and pro films. IIRC Kodak uses the T-Max architecture in
some way with the E200. I haven't heard of this with Elitechome 200. But I
just don't know for sure. I like Elitechrome 200 in a pinch, but I do like
E200 quite a bit better.
E200 does have really fine grain, somewhat at the expense of
resolution/sharpness (as compared to the ASA 100 films).
