    'tis great paper as you say Jim. It's also one of the most readily available in NZ. Along with Ilford Multigrade and Forte papers that is. Incidentally, I noticed they recently changed the packaging on their papers. Perhaps the improved marketing and distribution has started .

    Of all the things I've ordered through the common channels (B&H, Adorama, Freestyle, etc.) Agfa papers are one of the few things that I have never had back ordered as far back as I can remember. I use at least 200 sheets of 8x10 Agfa RC per month, besides the other brands I regularly use. Luminos, Forte, Paterson, and Kodak products (even Tri-X!) to name a few, have all come up as back ordered in the past many years at one time or another. Not Agfa, though. Marketing is another matter. They need to get aggressive.

    The answer to my e-mail to customer service sadly confirms that in spite of this nice new website, Agfa no longer manufactures sheet film. For the duration, I shall refuse to purchase any film in rolls which is not also available in sheets.
