a) This is defintively good news for IR-shooters (o.k., I am not), and kudos to MACO for supplying the b&w-market with such products.

b) I absolutely don't find it fair to devaluate the actual technical resources and competence of Fotokemika, based on unverified stories, only to justify MACO's move from one supplier to another. Efke films are now mostly distributed under the ADOX label, and while MACO had re-labelled a lot of Efkes in the past, I do not think they will do so in the future. But this does not justify the spreading of rumours about "EFKE being not good enough for MACO anymore".
