After searching a bit I finally found the page about the film special order program now open. I looked at the 11x14 HP5 and it is listed at a special price of $220.76. I went to B&H photo and it is listed for $199.95. I guess I am confused about the special order. I thought one could go and buy 5-10 boxes and it would be cheaper not more expensive. Is the B&H stock old? Certainly doesn't say that. Does this mean the new stock will be $20 more so grab the B&H stock? There seems to be no advantage for me here unless I am missing something.
I do see the Opportunity to buy fp4 and delta 100 in 11x14 as that isn't listed too often at other places or you must buy a minimum of 4 boxes. So I can see that. And I see that if you use the larger sizes of film or odd sizes that this is probably your only opportunity to grab some film. So am I just lucky that 11x14 is stocked at B&H and I don't need to take advantage of this annual offer unless as I mentioned I want delta 100 or fp4? Would appreciate a bit of insight.
