    From now on Agfa microfilms will be sold solely under the (former Kodak) tradename "Imagelink" by Eastman Park Micrographics.

    So far that company only presents old Kodak datasheets. So, one has to wait and see which Agfa films, if not all, will show up at the new distributor.

    From Eastman Park Micrographics, and via those few microfilm dealers left I assume.

    so eastman park micrographics is no longer buying from Kodak? Good news I guess in giving AGFA Belgium a bit more business. Been years since I had a job in Microfilming, but I recall that the Kodak,Fuji, and (at the time Gevacopy) films were basically interchangeable.

    That is not stated. But, seen the current situation of Kodak and a statement from Agfa about increased microfilm production due to that deal, this is what I deduce.

    Lately Micrographics have got their films from Kodak soley branded as Imagelink. Thus the name Kodak has vanished from the microfilm field and seemingly no Agfa films will be sold under the brand Kodak.
