IMHO, you are not missing much compared to today's films. It is a fine film, but new films are amazing. (They are too good sometimes.) I still have some Ektar 25 that I shoot from time to time, but I would not bother to track it down, and I would not pay more than 25 cents a roll for it in any condition. FWIW, my Ektar seems to have held up fine in my freezer. But maybe I should move it to the fridge.
