To make it from Monday to Wednesday you'd have to be lucky with any dealer - 2-3 days is the rule.
) has a 24-hour delivery service, but no Efke 25. Tri-X is there, though. You could order some Neopan 1600 while you're at it, it being discontinued and everything... For the low sensitivity you could take Pan F (very nice film) - or Spur Orthopan KM if you would like to try a 20 ASA ultra-high resolution microfilm
) in Berlin has a good all-round selection of material, is relatively cheap, and is almost guaranteed to have Tri-X and Efke 25 (even though they probably call it Adox 25 or so, but the film is the same). You'd have to inquire about the delivery times though. You'd probably have to be lucky. You could call them now, the Berlin office works until 8 pm on Saturdays.
) has Efke 25, even though they sell it as Rollei 25 (again, same film with different label). They also have Tri-X. They have a reputation for being expensive, I never ordered with them. I think they're shipping from Kassel, which is near Hanover, but within Germany distance doesn't make a difference delivery-time-wise. Again, you have to ask about delivery times.
How do you go back to NZ? If you pass through Berlin you could also buy your things at Fotoimpex in their shop. If you pass through somewhere else, maybe there's a shop there too.
