Oh well, perhaps my comments are useless in this venue.
Don't think they are PE, your insight and experience get's at least my respect and i could not agree with you more.
I have and will continue to praise the Kodak products that i buy and use cause i can't find anything better.
Those of us who do like the products just need to speak up and get over this "Bad boy using Kodak" attitude and turn the threads bashing Kodak into the oposite.
