I think I would agree, though it wasn't the case a few years ago, when 
ISO100 slide seemed to be much sharper than col.neg. I think both have 
improved, but neg has improved more.

There isn't much in it though, and I'm limiting the verdict to Fuji, speed 
for speed. I have usually been less impressed by Kodak sharpness, though 
grain is sharper in their emulsions they seem to get more image diffusion - 
halation perhaps, or thicker emulsion layers, or just different grain 
technology?. All anecdotal and informal anyway, not measured or done with 
any rigour, and may be wrong.

OTOH I have some old Kodachrome 25 slides which probably exceed any E6 or 
C41 film.
