How far can one push Vision 3 50D and still produce a decent image?

I would if I could.
However I am utilizing the UltraPan8 format which utilizes Regular 8 film (2R-1497). Specifically the full 16mm width of R8 with R8 pulldown. Here is a scanned example, i.e.
In general there only two reversal R8 (2R-1497) stocks available, E100D and Plus-x. UltraPan8 only utilizes the right side B-Wind perf for pulldown. I recently had Mr. Edward Nowill in the UK reperforate 800 FT of standard single perf 16mm V3 50D (1R-2994) into a special B-wind only R8 stock, i.e. 1R-1497.
This only usable in the UP8 format. V3 200T/500T are forthcoming. Hence my question.

Well I've never pushed any of the 50D stocks myself, but I'd imagine with 7203 that you could probably get it to at least EI 200 (ie 2 stops) before you start have troubles.
Of course testing is the only option, really.
