I dream of having Kodachrome 25 and 200 back. I just bought two rolls of Kodachrome 25 that have been frozen and expired at the end of '04 and I can't wait to shoot the!! I wasn't into Kodachrome much when they were around. I will hopefully get some 200 to try to, but I know that the colors shift quickly with 200. Unless someone else processes Kodachrome, I don't think we will ever see MF. Don't give up Kodachrome just because you can't get Kodachrome 25 in 120. The current Kodachrome 64 is great too! You can still get amazing prints from the 35mm Kodachrome!

Because if people would pay everything for what it is worth, the entire fashion business will disappear overnight and it won't be the only one. Purchase choices are just that, choices. Personal choices, everybody is free to make what he/she believes are his good ones.

It is a personal choice, yes.
What you do not address is that if your personal choice is to go for a "Lomography" overpriced Lomo or Lubitel, you might still think you are engaged in Lomography, but that you are definiteley not.
It is (to continue the fashion theme) like the factory worn, pre-ripped blue jeans that were (still are?) so popular.
People want to show that they do not care for a slick, conformist, big bucks 'establishment' appearance, by buying a slick, conformist, big bucks, 'establishment' apearance.
Buy an overpriced "Lomography" Lomo or Lubitel, and you show yourself to be a misled fashion victim, oblivious of what the thing originally was about, but far too ready to state that you are part of it to see that, by doing so, you most definitely are not.
A personal choice?
I still keep two rolls of Kodachrome 25 in my freezer. As a museum piece, with backup. To have something to show to coming generations.

I (of course) have tried Kodachrome 64. But to me, it is not Kodachrome. Nowhere near Kodachrome 25. And i even liked Ektachrome 64 a lot better.
Then came Ektachrome 100, which even gave Kodachrome 25 a run.
Still, nothing can beat the colour of Kodachrome 25 (not the accuracy, but the character).
They made the wrong choice when they made a new Kodachrome to be released as roll film. We wanted Kodachrome 25.
They made another wrong choice when they discontinued Kodachrome 25, and kept making Kodachrome 64.
Now, i do not use transparency film. It is B&W or colour negative. I don't project images, so slide film is of absolutely no use to me.
