They're hardly abandoning film at all. What they've done is put their best foot forward. They've got
their finest, most versatile color neg and b&w films ever. Maybe not as big a selection as in the old
days - but financial common sense favors reengineering toward greater versatility and less redundancy. Yeah, some people are disappointed that they stopped making chrome film; but they do have to pick and choose which battles they can realistically win. I'd far rather see a sustainable
small selection of really good film than an unustainable big selection of it.
