Hey Bob,

Good question. Years ago I asked a Kodak rep about that (and you know 
their reputation for farsightedness) and, if memory serves, he said 
something about fog concerns with leaky film holders and such. Seems 
like that shouldn't be their concern as much as the photographer's.

I never shot the Delta 3200 but I loved the tonal characteristics of 
Kodak's TMZ film at EI 800. Wonderful toe and shoulder behavior.
