What is the difference between T-MAX 100 Professional and
Professional T-MAX 100. Kodak gives different developing times
for these in their RS Developer data sheets but I can't find
and sellers of this film that make a distinction between them.
The differences in development time are quite large especially for
sheet film.

The change came about when Kodak moved the production of B&W films to their new coating facility (a few years ago now). So, no real film difference, just the coating, which did affect the developing time.

Thanks for the info.
So is it the Professional T-Max 100 that Kodak are making now?

Bruce -

Yes, it is. Also, Kodak designates the new film as "100TMax" rather than "TMax 100". The Kodak tech data publication F-4016, which you can download from the Kodak website, includes pictures of the old and new packaging so you can easily tell the difference.
