    Dear Simon,

    As you know, there was a bug in SFX distribution. All 120 roll films were out of date since june 2006. My question is : is that film really out of date (old stock) or packaging problem?

    Thanks for answer . I have bought 6 of these films...

    Dear Aurelien,

    I have checked it out, the recent manufacture was all one batch, expiry date Jan 2009 so I guess someone sold you old stock.

    One nice detail about the old 120 stock (sorry, Ole): they still have the mint taste! (At least my own old stock has). :D

    (Still, when I receive my order, I certainly hope it's fresh stock.)
