    As always, please make the distinction between "available in the US/Canadia" and "being made at the factory".
    If Fuji US are to be believed, then all chromes in sheets were discontinued ages ago, almost every "death of velvia" thread I've ever read only quotes US distributors.
    However they are still being made at the factory in Japan with 2015 expiry dates (I know because I've got some direct from Japan, at US$140 for 20 sheets of 4x5 thankyou very much)
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    Sounds definitive, Stone. You'd think that given the apparent mayhem that stores/distributors can create with announcements allegedly from Fuji which it would seem are wrong, that Fujifilm North American Corporation would decide to make its own announcement here on APUG to stop this kind of thing. It wouldn't be that time consuming and might stop the doom and gloom. In recent months APUG product announcements must rival Orson Wells' 1938 radio programme for generating mass panic

    It might be different if there were only half a dozen Fuji products users here on APUG based in the U.S. but you are scattered from California to the New York Island. I can't help feeling that there's a song somewhere here!

    On a happier note I can state that Orson's Martians are definitely discontinued. Well according to my local distributor they are discontinued so I have bought 100 bricks of them for e-bay while stocks last

    There is an ongoing discussion on the large-format forum with the same title by the same original poster, on that one badgergraphics has actually came and made a statement regarding their representative on the forum and it was the opposite of my email, so I asked them to give me the contact information and am now in direct contact with the representative to see where the disconnect is. I am now waiting to hear back from him.

    Ok, it's been solved...

    Essentially I was right....

    The SKU number changed.... And the way they announced this was... "Hey this SKU is discontinued"

    Then days later said "this is the new sku"....

    Bad Fuji....

    Anyway we can all rest assured that just for a little while at least we still have Velvia100

    It's just doing due diligence... With the amount if misinformation (and possibly disinformation who knows for sure) it's better to ask as directly as you can to as many official sources as you can.

    I contacted Fuji USA by email, Fuji USA and JP by twitter, and the Fuji rep for badger graphics and the ordering rep at B&H Photo.

    The only one who said this was discontinued was Badger, and they later came on LFF and retracted their statements, claiming the bad info came from Fuji but not exactly sure where, finger pointing etc. But I'm sure they were just confused by the sku info change...

    From the Fuji rep...

    That's right! How did you know? My local stockist's a nice slightly wizened old man called Mekon. He has assistants who are good for heavy work but with limited brain power.

    The local trouble-maker, called Dare, is quite rightly banned from Mr Mekon's shop. We all keep an Eagle eye out for Dare and his mates
