i wanted to find out if some one could tell me how 5219 compares to fuji eterna 500t
In my opinion 5219 is a film stock made especially for the digital postproduction. Eterna 500T is comparable with 5218 Kodak Vision 2. If You are going through DI, go for 5219. If you are going to make an optical print I would suggest eterna or 5218, if You need 500T.

5219 probably has more exposure latitude, more range to be misexposed. Though I found on "Jennifer's Body" that when 5219 is pushed one-stop, reds get more saturated, some sometimes fleshtones get a bit ruddy.

We compared Kodak and Fuji for my feature and this was the conclusion as well, which is why we went with Fuji.
I've always felt that the Kodak stocks were more accurate in general in reproducing reality, whereas the Fuji stocks had a slight transformative effect, whether that's a good thing or not. But sometimes I feel that this gives the Fuji stocks are more painterly feeling.
