Eterna 500T is similar to Kodak 5218 but lower in contrast, more pastel. I think it is a hair less grainy.

Eterna 400T is even lower in contrast, which makes it look even softer and somewhat similar to the grain of 500T, but better than the old F-400T.

I find rating these stocks 2/3's of a stop slower helps give them some snap and keeps the grain down.
