    I agree except that I certainly haven't seen any "flame wars." Anyone who thinks there have been any flames at all in this thread just hasn't been around the Internet much.

    I like Kodak color film a lot and hope it sticks around. I use it almost exclusively in color neg, except for some Fuji and long gone and lamented Agfa Optima that I got in a package deal off eBay, reportedly frozen since purchased and definitely frozen by me since I got it, that all works beautifully. I like Tri-X and TMY-2 but could live without them. Same for T-Max RS. I'll likely continue using those as long as they are available, so I am supporting Kodak.

    I also shoot Pan F+, FP4+ and Delta 3200, and love them all for what they do best.

    I know people at Kodak, you do not.....believe me, Kodak is not the CEO, it is the products and the people who work real hard at keeping it going.
    1. Kodak's own words state clearly that film is not their core business, hence why it is for sale.
    2. I do not care one wit about MP film.
    3. None of my comments are directed at the employees of Kodak's film division.
    4. All of my comments are directed at Kodak's senior executive staff.

    Question: suppose Kodak manages to sell their film division, would that be bad?
    Would that necessarily mean that Kodak's films disappear from the market?
    Why buying the film division just in order to kill it?

    These films are among the best on the market, some the very best. There is, after all, a reasonable demand for their products, evan if the volume isn't what it was.

    For those of us who want their pruducts still being on the market, it's not imortant who makes them.
    If Kodak wants to do something else than making films, why not let Kodak make somethinhg else (if they still want to survive as a comapny) and let someone else make these films, evan if they, perhaps, will be produced under some different names.
    Kodak isn't important, their products/films are!
