I'll do it if I have to but I really prefer to use ACROS where possible. I just love its tone curve, its sharpness, and its smoothness. 2TMY at EI 400 in XTOL the rest of the time. I rarely shoot at higher EI since Neopan 1600 was discontinued (sigh). Also, the winters here don't just give us short days but also a lot of cloud cover and rain. Winters here are a lot darker than winters in New Hampshire were.
Also, if I bring the 21 at all, it's usually the primary lens and not a fallback.
