Thirded!! I shot some Portra 400 in Sorrento earlier in the year, also some Provia 100. There are some lovely colours to capture!! I did shoot a variety of B&W film too.
I mainly shot the Portra at 200, metered for shadows.
I'm sure they will be great!!
The first roll I shot in my Electro 35, which is aperture priority with maximum iso setting of 1000. So I started shooting the roll at 1000, but then decided I needed more speed so set it to the fixed flash sync (1/30 from memory) and shot wide open - guestimating...
The second shot looks sharper to my eye and has better shadow detail or more tonal range.
I think they both look good for 35mm. If anyone finds grain objectionable, don't try scanning medium/fast black & white with a Nikon Coolscan V!!!
On the subject of AG, for those who use their dev only option, have you found your negs to be clean?
I have sent a few rolls of slide to them on two different occasions and on both, some of the negatives have been very dirty - dirtier than my home devs, in less than controlled environments...
As far as I understand it, the P3200 means it is designed to be pushed to 3200, and as mentioned above, it's true speed is ISO800.
The development times stated by Kodak are for when it has been shot at 3200.
As pushing increases contrast, it is probably a very low contrast film at it's true...
I think that is one of the better ones - but I agree, it looks ok at small sizes, I'll have to try printing a few. Viewing 1:1 on a 24" monitor makes almost any emulsion look grainy!!
The first roll I tried I was using my Electro 35 and shot some at 1000, then some at 1600/3200 using the fixed...
Still not decided on 3200 film for 35mm.....

Rollei 35S, Kodak T-Max P3200 dev'd in ID11. This is the second roll of T-Max 3200 I have shot, the grain can be a bit much when scanning with my Nikon...
Here's a recent one from a trip to Cambridge - love the tones, just a shame I didn't take a bit more time getting the geometry right :(
