I guess it depends on the market. In EU the E-6 films are slightly more expensive (Provia 100F 5 pack costs 28.4 EUR, Portra 160 costs 22 EUR), the chemistry is slightly more expensive, too (Tetenal 5L E-6 kit costs 90 EUR, C-41 costs 75 EUR), BUT I find E-6 easier to master, the results are superior, too. As long as E-6 is available I will stick with it.
