    I think it sucks... atleast canon is staying in the film game for now... but it's going to force guys like me who'd rather shoot film to move to digital.

    it's not like the F6 it out of production or the millions and millions of F-mount 35mm bodies out there and the service parts still aren't available

    it's more than that... if they stop producing 35mm cameras, companies like kodak & fuji will stop producing "professional" film (ie: velvia) and, why produce new lenses for film bodies... canon is already making lenses that will only fit DSLR bodies....

    professional films are still going to be made in quantities to satisfy the demand that is still there

    demand for new 35mm bodies is declining, while demand for 35mm film declines at a slower rate

    not very many though, and they are not professional quality (some might argue that the 10-22 is however)

    most lenses are still film compatible and I think film will continue on, especially in the professional realm. the consumer side of things is the one that is truly declining.

    I don't see what the big deal is about phasing out of film. Film is just a storage medium, just like CFII, SD, MS, etc. I mean, I wouldn't be all butt hurt if they suddenly phased out Microdrives. *shrug*

    I'll make the jump from a 35mm to a DSLR and not complain that much... but I hope to god they don't stop producing 120 film.
