FX-50 characteristics?

The only trace of Paterson's new ascorbic-based FX-50 here in the US has been brief mention in Photokina reports. A visit to the Jessops site shows current UK retail availability. Has anyone over there tried it, and, if so, would you please share your results? My fantasy has FX-50 as an Xtol equivalent that performs consistently. Hope springs eternal! Thanks in advance.

Is the formula for FX-50 published? If so, can someone post it?

Noticed a Paterson ad in the Jan/Feb 2002 issue of Photo Techniques that arrived yesterday. It included FX-50, a Web site and a US (Georgia) address. B&H still doesn't list FX-50, so I went to the Paterson site. This page:


indicates that FX-50 will be available next Spring. Wait and see.
