C'mon. Kodak? ADOX? Just because you've settled on your particular films doesn't mean you should not care if others go away.

But Fuji is the only game left for slide film (aside from black and white film reversal processed, or reversal processed C41 if you want that look) so it matters a lot more. And even when Kodak was around, 400X was still unique. It's a wonderful film. They've now canceled their two best ever slide films, Astia and Provia 400X.
I agree that it sucks they're the only e6 game in town. But this is specifically why you should care that there is more than one manufacturer of a particular medium!
