Silvermax is the cheapest alternative when ordering from fotoimpex.de, even cheaper than Fomapan 100, while Acros is the most expensive.
Not strange at all. We have been here before. It is yet another example of "what the market will bear" or what the seller(s) think the market will bear. Clearly the sellers believe there is a premium on something new with lots of silver in the U.S. market.
Cynical on my part? Of course but I am only reciprocating the cynicism shown to me by the sellers.
