Tried again DK-50 with FP4+, but this time at 1:1 dilution, and with the 5.5 min recommended time (Massive Development Chart). Negatives OK where well exposed, maybe a bit thin but plenty of contrast.

The roll was shot in the Nikon F2. From top to bottom, 28mm, 20mm, 20mm and 50mm.
My conclusion is that DK-50 is close to an untamed version of D-76 - shorter times, crisp grain and more contrast. At 1:1 dilution, I have enough DK-50 left for about two years of 35mm shooting; but I fear that the solution will not last that long. In only one month in a well-closed 1 gallon glass container, it has already turned into a nice piss-yellow.
Probably it is going to be back to classics, home-mixed Beutler and D-76.
