No, IME you are unlikely to see genuine grain off ISO200 Fuji using
2700ppi. You are likely to get some aliasing which looks like grain. A way
to check this would be to have a reasonably large C41 print made (say
12x8"). I'll bet.

Yes, you'll likely see quite a large increase in apparent grain in darker
tones (eg shadow areas) especially.

Also try a slower colour neg film, eg Reala.
