    Sorry for starting another thread, I hope this will prevent a constant 'no' barrage. Being far out in the Pacific, things take a bit longer to get here so I'm trying to anticipate the arrival.

    Should be available now, unless your local shops have not ordered them, I have been able to get it locally here for over a month now..I know when I lived in Kona, it would take about a month longer for new stuff to show up.

    I'm awaiting the Free New Portra Deal that Kodak did. I'd be interested if anybody else has found the *new* Portras around. Kaneohe stay wet, eh cuz?

    B&H have some rollfilm versions in now, but no sheet film. They may not have all variations in all sizes - it depends on whether or not they have sold out of the old version. It is no good asking the staff though - most don't seem to know how to tell the difference.

    Best,
    Helen
