    Has anyone else noticed that TMAX 100 readyloads seem to be both less available and considerably more expensive? B&H has been out of stock for weeks, the prices at Freestyle and Calumet have risen from just under $50 to over $60. My local store, where I try to purchase whenever feasible, has also been waiting for their order from Kodak. One reason I have not tried Acros has been the price, but it is now looking more attractive. Any thoughts? Does anyone have any inside info?

    Thanks.

    I don`t know about supply in the US, but I am hoping to try it soon in the UK when I have used the last sheet of FP4 Plus that I have.
    Ilford don`t offer an equivalent of ReadyLoads and Fuji 100 Acros in QuickLoads are around £45, while the Kodak film sells around £25 per pack.

    Perhaps Kodak have laid off so many workers that they can't fulfill orders in a timely manner any longer.
