True.

Having the Panasonic brand on a Film cap is enough for me to use it

Yes, Panasonic makes really nice caps, Wima too, in fact any commercial brand should be ok.

If you are chasing a vintage thing, many believe polyester gets you closer, among new cap choices.  Preferred by many in Pultec clones.

I never understood the fascination with Pultecs, and I used to own a couple of them, not clones, originals. Pretty much prefer a GML eq.
