    I've just stumbled upon a store that has about 20 rolls of 24 exposure 135 Plus X 125 in stock for $4.99 a roll. Is it worth my money to snag this up? I love the film and I would buy this in a heart beat if I thought I wouldn't see it again, or only see this at a much higher price, the film is dated sept 2013.
    Is this a good deal?

    It's a good deal. If you want to make money on it, put it in the freezer for five years and then sell it for a big profit.

    If the OP likes the film (like I do!) the best advice is to suggest he shoot it, and get the joy from it it deserves.

    It doesn't drop dead as soon as the expiration date hits, either. You have at least a few years, quite possibly longer to consume it.

    Good stuff, I shot the last of mine about a month ago in Asia. Mine was a bit past due so there was some fog. Admittedly I shoot tmax 100 (as well as fp4+) way more.
