Yikes! Fred Sommer was right!

Caveat emptor: not unlike the uneven emulsion on sheet film which made Frederick Sommer exclude open skies from hie compositions in the 1940s, there is a current problem with 120 roll film. It’s too late for those os us who stock up in advance, but check emulsion numbers before buying for a while. Once again (to quote Mr. Stieglitz), a word to the wise is sufficient.
