I'm honestly surprised they waited this long. As much as I love my two seitz cameras, the film for the 70mm camera will likely be discontinued. I'd love to own the high end digital version for color work, for both rotational and 6x17. I would still use my cirkuts for b&w work, and the film cameras for as long as I can get film. From a business point of view it makes sense that they would do it.
