Today? The apx 100 and 400 that I bought in the grey boxes. Period. Everything else is just marketing bla (read: lies, unfair competition, plain BS).

No idea, but it seems there are still many films in the storehouses. They are still available, and they are pretty cheap - well, 35mm only.

Based on facts or from a 'marketing point of view'?

A company in Germany purchased some Agfa machines and promises to restart production as "Adox Pan" films. So far, they made a first coating, ISO 400 film only, and it's sold out. Since then... calm is the sea.
