Hopefully film use is exploding!
As for KR he seems to get extreme reactions from many people one way or the other. I take him with a grain of salt and haven't really looked at his site in the past few years.
But. I blame him for my drooling GAS around the 28mm F/2.8 AIS, which I don't really need since I've got 24, 35 and 55mm; but... but... well it's right in the "sweet" range for me and I know I'd love 28mm, and KEH is one click away and it's not very expensive and .... argh!
I've restrained myself for over a year but I doubt I'll hold out much longer.
