    Maybe but Kentmere paper made by Ilford is not really cheaper in England than here. I just thing the traders say hey it's the Ilford brand name lets make some money on it big time.

    I don't mind paying for the major brand name in batteries when the reputation is rock solid and proven. I spend $80 on lithium AA batteries for my EOS1N; I wouldn't dare put Chinee/grey market stuff in. Never take shortcuts with things like batteries when you could be left "dead in the water" at a critical time.
    Most of the major brand leading batteries are actually made in China, if you read the small print on the packaging.
