I just ordered Fuji Neopan 1600
I don't wan't to start a rumor here, so I'll keep to facts and keep the speculations to a minimum, but:
The Fuji Neopan 1600, seemingly discontinued a long time ago and is still listed as discontinued most places, seem to be available.
I just ordered myself 50 rolls from a store in the UK and while talking to the rep there, he said that they had plenty and could easily get more as *Fuji had put it back into production -for now anyway- * as he worded it.
I have sent a query to B&H about this, to see if they know/can check or verify.
As of now anyway, the film seem to be possible to get hold of from a few places in the UK.
- I've already received 5 rolls of Fuji Neopan 1600 from the UK in another order I made last week.
The 1600 was added more or less at a fluke when I ordered a bunch of Acros and Neopan 400. I mostly thought it was an error in the web-shop, but to my surprise, 5 rolls of Neopan 1600 was in the box in the shipment, expiration date 07 2012.
I plan to use it with Spur SLD and Ilford's Microphen for the most part, but I may even try some in Tetenal Ultrafin as well, I've had really nice results with Neopan 400 in that dev.
Just wanted to inform.
Overwelming response, no wonder Fuji keep killing awesome films :P
If this is true, I'm buying a case of the stuff as soon as I can. It's my favorite 35mm film of all time...
Send an enquiry to http://www.processuk.net/ and ask, that's where I ordered my 50 rolls today. (I didn't order everything they had, those rolls surely will keep me supplied for a long time coming)
They also have it in http://www.ag-photographic.co.uk/fuj...-36-1069-p.asp , but based on the text there I am unsure on how much they have.
http://www.fujilab.co.uk also have it, even £1 cheaper than other places, but they don't ship outside the uk.
Any word on availability in the states.. I agree with the above - Such a fantastic 35mm film

Thanks for the info, if Neopan 1600 is available, I'll have to get some. One of my favorite fast films ever!
EDIT: I don't want to start a rumor either, but the film is listed on Fuji's USA site as a 20-roll pack, and I found a vendor selling it in the states. I've never heard of East Coast Photo but there it is.

Sorry, but that date does not inspire confidence in a resurrection scenario. Maybe the shop is just trying to rid old stocks before it goes out of date?

Deep frozen though, I am not worried that they will keep for years.
I am glad I got hold of some. The acros and neopan's have really knocked the socks off just about anything I've tested so far, love the stuff. =)
Great film, but I was a 1 or 2 roll-a-year user. Its high sensitivity and its short use-by date were linked in my mind. Alas.
