	Hi -

	To a friend - always free of charge. For the others,
	it depends on how onerous and dangerous the job was
	and whether there was any learning benefit to me.

	Are you comparing pleasures?
	I have no idea how much pleasure Mr. Tamarkin gets out
	of owning that $80K Leica. The pleasure I get seeing a
	friend smile at an image I recorded is priceless.

	Now back to the original posting. As I recall, the previous
	poster commented on the bidding "craziness" at auctions
	where Leica items are sold and the perceived investment
	potential of Leica cameras -- and the effect that these
	actions have on the ordinary person who wanted to just
	use this camera.
