Has anyone had their lab push process Kodak E100 film?

Since there are no slide films currently made faster than ISO 100
it might be useful to know how this film handles a 1-2 stop push...

You might check with AgX lab in Sault St. Marie, MI. Talk to Michael Lussier, there. He'll know. Just Google AgX. It'll come up.

Not as sharp as I would like to see. Ektachrome E100 (the new one), Wista 45RF and Nikkor 90 f8

It is at least sharper than Ektar and Portra 160.
But not as sharp as the former Kodak E100G.
And Provia 100F had already surpassed former E100G in sharpness, and is significantly surpassing current new E100 in sharpness and resolution.
Provia is also a bit less contrasty and has better dynamic range. It is a bit warmer in color rendition than E100, too.

Concerning sharpness all who have tested it come to the same conclusion:

I've developed my first 4 rolls that were shot last summer and cool stored, using TT Colortec. The films came out great. Lovely Ektachrome colours. I read a post or two above advising on shooting the new Ektachrome at E.I. 80. Not the case I'm affraid. Kodak know better.

Curious how did you scan 4x5 transparency with EZ Controller? Thanks!

I send the film to a lab for dev/scanning, so I don't know. Really do need to work out the process myself.

My results after about 30 rolls of Ektachrome E100:

- E100 is sharper, finer grained and higher resolving than all current color negative films (that was expected as it is characteristic for slide films)

- E100 is less sharp and has lower resolution than former E100G

- E100 is less sharp and has lower resolution than Provia 100F and both Velvias

- E100 has cooler tones than former E100G and current Provia 100F

- E100 is contrastier - steeper gradation curve - than former E100G and current Provia 100F

- E100 has less latitude and dynamic range than Provia 100F (and E100G)

- E100 has less speed (1/3 stop) than Provia 100F (Provia has real ISO100).

So my results are in-line with the majority here, and with those who have tested this film intensively.
E100 is a very good film. But Provia 100F has been - and is also today - the benchmark for neutral/natural transparency films. Provia remains the better film.
