Yes 36 exposures are way too many! You've got company there!
When you find a film with less than 36 bangs to a roll, please do let me know...
( Then again, there's always the very agreeable 10-12 exposures afforded by medium format...)
A few weeks ago I was passing by a camera store and stopped in. They had Delta 100 24exp for half the price of 36, so I picked up 2 rolls.
