    Which version is this, old Agfa stock from 2005 +-, or the new stuff that ADOX was supposed to get going again?

    It's AgfaPhoto (Red Dot on the box) marked Made In Germany. Beyond that, I don't know.

    Glass Key is a great photography shop in San Francisco. If you live in the Bay Area or are visiting, I'd recommend checking it out. Thanks for posting this!

    It might be old stock. I've been shooting various APX films with an exp date of '09, but mine was made by Agfa-Gevaert, made in Germany. What is your exp date? My boxes have the red diamond, not a dot.

    Yeah, I keep seeing this popping up, what is the situation? Is it old film that Glass Photo just got a hold of or is it something new? The way people are talking it sounds like it is of new manufacture

    I guess I should have mentioned, I am Glass Key Photo. It's film I just got from a distributor. The link to the data sheet is the old Agfa one, so I am assuming it's still from the master rolls they did just before they went away. I'm just happy to have access to it again!

    Every AGFA APX 100 (or Rollei Retro 100) being sold now is old stock (2005 AGFA frozen master rolls).
