Please keep in mind: The first Formula is a metol only developer without redox system (usual HQ). Ths developer has a very short shelf life, less than a week. You are always in danger getting thin negatives. Beside this, metol only devs los around one stop.
From my point of view, this are specialized developers which should only used for fine grained film lik PanF+. There are said producing a slightly finer grain. Because the lose a stop it is normally easier using a slower film. But if you still use the film with the lowest ISO it's usage may make sense.
