Ken Rockwell's opening statement is correct, matter of factly. However, 100F is useful for lifting hue and colour in early morning and evening landscapes. The only samples I have are three actual Ilfochrome Classic framed prints on my gallery walls printed from 35mm 100F trannies (the bulk of the 'chromes are printed from RVP 50). They have a noticeably less lively and emboldened palette than Velvia 50 and in hindsight if I were to shoot the scenes again there would be no questioning the ability of Velvia 50 as the emulsion to do it 'just-so'. 100F scans are frequently tweaked to tone down a noticeably cyanic bias; with Velvia 50, very minimal colourimetric inversion is needed before printing, and as a bonus it responds beautifully to full polarisation, which is used for 98% of my rainforest work.
