Fuji did announce a month or so ago that they would discontinue Velvia 50 by the end of the year and replace it with the Velvia 100 - which is a different film from the 100F. The Velvia 100 has been available in Japan for a couple of years and isn't new, except to the US/UK market. Fuji says they will continue marketing two separate 100 speed Velvia's. Here is a link with an article about the new film: http://www.kenrockwell.com/fuji/velvia100.htm
