I read that Kodak discontinued its '18 stock, but released 5260, a new 500T Vision 2 stock. Has anybody used this new stock? Any idea why they replaced '18? Does anyone know if '60 will be available for 16mm?

Between Kodachrome, EXR, the Vision 1 family, and now '18, it seems like Kodak has been discontinuing a lot of stocks lately.

5219 replaces 5218. 5260 replaces 5279, the idea being to maintain the look of the original Vision stock with the grain of a Vision 2 stock.

All I have to say is, thank God for a neg. stock with some contrast in it again. Enough of this low-con.-DI-scanner-optimization-at-the-expense-of-all-else crap.

5219 is out for Super 8 now, will this new 5260 be available in super 8 too? I think it looks great. :)
