I love to use kodak. but it seems they are signalling they will stop making film soon(5 years?). smaller batches and higher prices seem to be a sign, seems like some MBA inside kodak wants to kill it altogether.
also they keep killing emulsions, TP, EPR, EPP are all no more production. I bet you EPR will become very valuable in the future, once it becomes scarce, people will pay a premium for it, just like Tech pan which now goes for 3-4x its original price. E6 seems to have a life of 40-100 years if stored properly. I MUCH prefer it to velvia, I think the color rendition is much better IMHO.
