Neopan 1600 have been available in UK all the time, but with the incredible high price. Seems that the latest price drop is because of the short expiry date. I have never seen neopan 1600 with longer expiry date than 7.2012.
I love neopan 1600. This negative is a reason for me to keep 35mm equipement. My newborn daughter will have pictures from her birth taken on neopan 1600
Shame on Fuji to kill that incredible stuff, shame on users not to use it...
