Velvia 50 has been replaced with Velvia 100, which isn't surprising; the old Velvia formula is over 20 years old, so it was time to update the emulsion. The jury is still out on how good this new emulsion is, the 100F flopped badly. I've got some of the new Velvia 100, but haven't processed it yet. Here is an article on Velvia 100 that might interest you: http://www.kenrockwell.com/fuji/velvia100.htm

FWIW, there is another version of Velvia that is currently only being sold in Japan.
