    If you check on B&H, Adorama, they both show "Discontinued" on the 4x5" Velvia 50 films (10-sheet pack)
    I also called Hunts Photo Video and the lady told me the same thing too.

    I then called Fuji and they told me that the 10-sheet pack is discontinued but may have 20-sheet pack in September.... have any of you heard about such things?

    If that's the case, where do you get Velvia 50 sheet films nowadays?

    just did the math for the Japanexposure prices...

    $20k yen is like $220 :surprised:!!!!!!

    where do they get that kind of pricing? Here in LA 50sht boxes were selling for like $90-100?
