    So, one rule does not fit all.

    This article does not seem to think so:

    Rich;

    Again it depends on the "plan" that you have for retirement from EK. The article is correct for recent employees, but some employees are "grandfathered" and are protected in a variety of ways. For instance the SIP plan I mentioned is protected, but not considered part of the retirement plan nor do some employees choose to take part in it.

    So, the article is correct but limited in scope.

    Thanks for posting this.

    I recently conducted a one-person run on film but nobody in the blogosphere asked me about it.

    (And this, just before I learned I was getting from a relative a belated Christmas gift of 40 rolls of Tri-X.)

    Yeah and he mentions the new Nikon D4. I saw in the B&H email I got the side of which is covered with ports....even a headphone jack port! Man, wish my Rolleiflex 2.8E Planar had a headphone jack port! :-)

    Another restructure, I wonder if the two divisions get to fight over using Building 38...

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/...pe=companyNews

    "..... , the company's commercial and consumer segments are absorbing the businesses that now sit in the Film, Photofinishing and Entertainment group. That group's head will move over to the newly named commercial business.

    The Commercial Segment will include the graphic communications group, as well as take on the entertainment imaging and commercial film businesses.

    The consumer business will include the consumer digital imaging group, as well as businesses from the old film and photofinishing unit, including paper and output systems, event imaging solutions and the consumer film and intellectual property business."

    Today at a photo/electronics show, Kodak unveiled several new products showing that R&D is not dead in digital at least.

    I used to work for an electronic equipment manufacturer. Chucking another product out the door from a base of similar products isn't that difficult. Since Perez wants to make a future in consumer digital devices, I'd be surprised if Kodak didn't have something at CES.

    Surprisingly, my sources tell me that Fuji is absent from the show for the first time!
