I've been shooting a bit of color neg in super 8 lately, scanning it with the Retro 8. Durung the summer months i've used mostly 50D which is quite stunning in the small format. But lately i've used a little more 200T in daylight conditions and am quite surprised as to how close the grain structure is to the 50D. It's also extremely sharp. I actually have a hard time telling them apart sometimes, if not for a memory jogging reference in the footage. That being said, I don't think there is a whole lot to loose for the extra speed when you need it in S8. The 7213 is pretty great.

200T is a very low grain stock but you should still see a little grain difference between it and 50D. Maybe the Retro 8 or it's software is cleaning it up just a little or the 720p resolution makes it less noticeable. But all that maters is how it works for you in your setup. The original Vision 200T was definitely more grainy but has gotten much better in V3.

One thing to factor is that grain is not always constant. If I compare the same shot in optimal conditions, the 200T has a subtle increase in grain. But since they are so close, when it comes to random conditions the grain palate of each stock can overlap to where the 50D is grainier on one shot compared to 200T on another,
