the pics I've shot with TMAX 3200 have a very pleasing
grain to my eye. Grain is different for me with  black
and white vs color. If that same grain was on a color
picture I'd seriously dislike it, but in shades of
grey grain is nice to have, gives things a 'texture'
that helps supplant the lack of color.
