Hi, yes its true, i have a letter from kodak uk advising that k40 is axed after currents stocks are exhausted. No surprise as i was advised of plans to discontinue 16mm k40 around 4-5 weeks from another letter originated from Kodak SA. Annoying thing is kodak uk only sell 7285 in 400ft loads, they will not supply 100ft lengths.

A sales office will stock the 100-foot camera spools of 7285 if there is enough sold in a region. 7285 is available as CAT No. 8936619, Spec. 455.

The letter quoted in the onsuper8 site refered to CAT 5053327 Would Kodak offices in europe not sell KMA455P rather then the KMA455 ? (Kodak can't really change one into the other as the edgeprinting is different on the "P" version. They are not suposed to sell the KMA455P version in the USA.)
