    You fears seem odd as Fujifilm is the one STILL producing a medium format FILM camera. Why would they do that if they are not committed to film?

    Where on earth did you get that assumption!?
    You may as well throw out your cameras if you are going to cling to heretics.

    Given their experience with optics and sensor technology, Fuji owes us a killer film scanner that mortals can afford. "Forward into the Past" seems in part to be the design spirit behind the X10, X100, and X Pro-1.

    I heartily agree, that seems like something right up their alley.

    Speaking of which, anyone else able to find Acros or other Fuji films? Seems it's sold out everywhere at the moment...

    One of te reason of discontinuation is EBAY. There are lots of second hand stuff on the market. We are happy to buy cheap materials but it's like a snake eating its own tail...

    I believe that's just a rebadged Cosina.
    They do make some 35mm cameras though.

    From what I have read, Fujifilm designed the camera and is having it manufactured by the 3rd party Cosina.

    Cosina does fantastic work on behalf of Fuji. I have one of their cameras and have fondled many others. Great products, and often quite innovative.
