And another, this time Reala:
Walking around my old neighborhood? I used to live near Perry and Hudson.
I think Corposant has posted comparisons showing more range in Provia. I haven't compared them in any scenes with a real expansive subject brightness range but I've found their colors surprisingly comparable. Velvia 50 had a bit more of a magenta hint in mid-day light for me and I think at sunrise and sunset it can't be beat.
In my experience, Astia has the most range (especially in the blue channel), then Provia, then Velvia.
That said, now that I have seen the benefits of a drum scan and Peter's scanning acumen first hand, even Velvia has a lot more range than you'd expect. Here's a straight scan (no adjustments), then the drum scan (with adjustments).
