I don't think that's all that contrarian - lots of folks think Fuji is on the way out and Fuji has given plenty of reasons to suspect as much.
Kodak claims they worked on the efficiency of their production line so they could reintroduce Ektachrome (for instance) profitably, and I imagine that took some investment and creativity on their part. If Fuji isn't interested in investing in their lines and if Kodak doesn't follow their pricing lead I don't know how Fuji will be able to continue selling the newly expensive Provia in April. I would think their volume would go through the floor. We'll see.
