    Translations aside, I for one hope that the reintroduced Agfa paper is near in quality as current batch I have.

    It makes perfect sense if back-translated literally to German, and then translated to Norwegian...

    Some call it heavenly in its briiliance. Others, mean and rueful of the western dream.

    Not sure about holding my breath but I need to suspend my belief in business economics.

    Agfa couldn't make it pay and it will cost a great deal now to restart things. However despite the less than rosy future for paper manufacture, there may be outside businesses willing to finance this, despite presumably having other investments available for their money.

    So a whole range of investments have been considered and re-starting Agfa came our on top?

    I wonder how they'd get on in the Dragon's Den. For non UK tv viewers this is where entrepreneurs looking for investment have about 5 minutes to convince a trio of hardheaded business people to invest in their idea.

    MCC111 was a beautiful paper and I'd be happy to buy it if it ever became available again, providing the whole pakage (base, emulsion/coating) was the same quality as the AGFA product.

    I'd buy it. I always thought their MC Classic fiber was just about one of the best papers around.

    Do you have a link to the German text?

    Rest assured and plan accordingly (it's nice to see former IRS code drafters have found work in the private sector...).

    Rest assured, if they make the same paper as before, I promise to stop vagabonding on the forums.

    Kodak out, Agfa in! If they do I hope they make trillions. Here that Kodak?
