Well, Kodak didn't promise to continue making all the film types they make now. Personally I'd rather see one profitable survivor than two manufacturers struggling to make a profit in slide films. Seems to me Kodak has come out with one or two "new" reformulations of films recently, and given the profitablility of their film division in general I don't see any reason not to take their statement at face value. I think they plan on remaining in the film business, which doesn't mean their won't be future "rationalizations" within their film division.
