Kodak is current claiming the Ektachrome E100G is the closest thing to it. Steve McCurry claims to have shifted to Ectachrome E100 VS.

End of an Era: Kodak to discontinue Kodachrome 64 - photo.net
Yes I would agree on the Ektachrome E100G as being the closest to Kodachrome 64. Kodak Ektachrome E100VS has very punchy colours more like the Fuji Velvia’s. The archival rating of the E100VS is also not as good as the highly rated E100G. (80 + years)

I’ve tried the Fuji E6 films for a year and they are good, but I’m going back to Ektachrome E100G after I finish my last rolls of Fuji.

Today I finally ordered some slide film, five rolls of Kodak Elite Chrome 100.
This will be my first slide film since using the last of my Kodachrome.
