I feel sorry for all those who loved and enjoyed this film, but to me the handwriting is on the wall when a film is no longer sold in 120 format. In a time where very decent MF equipment can be had for less than a cheesy DSLR kit a lot of amateurs get professional MF equipment - and having a film unavailable in 120 makes it barely interesting to me in 135 format, too, especially if similar products are offered in 135 and 120. It came as no surprise that Elitechrome got axed, too.
Second: there are lots of companies around who can coat simple B&W film but only three who have t-grain or something similar. I can therefore understand that Kodak leaves these low tech product lines to cheaper and less sophisticated producers and focuses more on their T-MAX product line and their professional color products, of course.
Third: while film&paper discontinuation is annoying, it's certainly not a show stopper if you have a decent freezer.
