The real story here for me is just how 'last chance' photography is becoming... reminds me of shopping in the USSR: if you see it buy it, even if you don't need it, because you may never see it again and at least can sell it.

I myself in the US am now trying to shoot as much Ektar as I can, around my E6 and B/W, since I assume it'll be a few months or maybe a year or so when we find /that/ discontinued too (As I did with Kodachrome 10 years ago, and E6 a few years ago, and finally MP 100D last year - but the lead time seems to be shortening). At the very least I'd guess it'll get more expensive soon.

It's sad and a little frightening to be on this sinking ship of color photography, but I'm going down with the ship (so to speak).
