Honestly, this purchase is a bit of nostalgia paired with a desire to shoot film again a bit. My wife and I are having a baby soon, and this seems like a good reason to pull the trigger on my return to film.

That was exactly my reason for getting back into film... I had a good "photo walk" with my digital and that really cemented it. Bought a roll of B&W, put it through my trusty ol' Pentax KX, and developed it myself. That was last fall, and I just developed my 50th roll the other day. Haven't looked back! My return to film has made all of my photography, film and digital, more enjoyable (though it's been mostly film recently).

Congrats on the baby! Another of life's great adventures. I just dug up some old slides from when our first was just learning to walk. Great stuff.
