    * Prime Directive: It only counts as a joke if it's only posted on April 1st. Anything before or after is unethical.
    I just noticed to posting on the website myself, and came here to see what buzz there might be.

    It's posted April 3 so it shouldn't be a joke.

    Awesome news if true, but the price it may have to sell for may be scary and prohibitive. What did the very last CPP2s sell for?

    I presume this would also mean they would start making tanks and reels again?

    Now that would be so cool. Their spindles are the only ones I can spool medium format film on without losing my temper in the process.
    Trying to be the best of whatever I am, even if what I am is no good.

    Crikey, that's around C$3150 or a bit more than 500 120 rolls at an average of my lab's charge for b&w/C-41/E6 development.

    One thing I'm not exactly clear on. It says inlcuding VAT. How much does one get charged for VAT ? I know a bit from when I travelled to GB years ago but can't remember what the rate was. If it IS included in the 2000 pound quote, and vat is expensive, it could mean it's not as expensive for North Americans as it might look.

    It's 20%, so it's still around GBP1600(at best) or C$2525 or about 420 rolls of 120 film developed. Expensive enough.

    Well, at that price, I won't be buying one myself, but it's very good news for film people (if true) and also may signal that parts for my current Jobo will continue to be available and, perhaps even drop in price! Here's hoping.

    What, 8 rolls a week? You don't shoot that much? Why not?
