I wonder if there is a big difference besides the amount of grain difference, and if it even matters. I can get a sweet deal on the 46 but I will pay more for the 05. Is it worth the extra money?

The 5205 has improved grain and sharpness, and the VISION2 "look" of well matched gray scale and very naturalistic color reproduction and very good flesh tones. It handles mixed lighting well.

If you liked 5246, use it. But you will likely prefer 5205 if you test them side-by-side. B)

have to agree - i've gotten good results with 5246, but 5205 is a pretty remarkable daylight balanced stock. shot in some really contrasty environments (bright daylight on a snowy mountain) and it held pretty much everything. truly gorgeous stock - definitely worth the extra cash.
