You can do Keylight tests and contrast tests.

Certainly you should run an exposure series, and test any variations of the lighting contrast (amount of fill). You will likely find the 5279 to be just a bit more contrasty, with the 5218 picking up a bit more detail in the deep shadows. The 5218 will have less graininess, and a more neutral tone scale from deep shadows to extreme highlights.

Testing the 29 aside as well may be interesting (low contrast stock).
