Polybun--with all due respect, in this thread you really don't know when to quit stepping on it, it seems. Do you think you really know more about what's going on at EK than Photo Engineer, who worked there for three decades? I won't bother recapitulating the counterarguments that have been offered in this thread, since you haven't bothered with them anyway.

Mindless Kodak bashing is really tiresome. Go enjoy the new or improved products; buy some so Kodak will continue to make them. This simple act of market capitalism will do more to secure the future of film-based photography than filling APUG's servers with online whining.
