I am still waiting for Simon's official Ilford take.

If the price increase is too much I will be forced to order from Fotoimpex in Germany which is something I would like to avoid because I want to support my local distributor. He is a very nice guy, he has helped me a lot and is the only one that carries film, paper and chemicals around here. Plus I like going in and buying the stuff instead of ordering big bunches from abroad. I am quite poor and have no much of choice when it comes to price. I spend almost all my paycheck on photo stuff and often to the expense of food (don't go out much lately) so it will hurt me to have to look for a cheaper source of materials but I won't have any other choice.
