Hi John,

I have often wondered why the prices of 'imported' up-scale (expensive) 
products such as cameras DO NOT reflect the exchange rate of the dollar 
to the (for example) Dmark.

The dollar is now very strong against the Dmark, but the price of new 
Leica equipment has not changed.  With the strong dollar, the price of 
a new Leica whatever should have gone down.
