Fuji dropped Acros a couple yrs ago. It triggered mass panic buying on APUG 
and from some people on Rangefinderforum. I never liked the stuff, it has 
strange tonality with very flat midtones. Only really good thing about it is 
the lack of reciprocity failure with very long exposures. I've done 5 minute 
exposures on it that looked wonderful. Just never liked it in normal light!

    I had no idea it had been discontinued. I do have a sizeable stash of 
it, since I live in a place where I have to buy all my film online, meaning 
in relatively large batches.
