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?
This is what I got via an email request for info:

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.
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.
