It seems to me that every authorized leica dealer advertises new Leica
prices that are exactly the same -- leading me to believe that Leica
in some way influences the prices that the dealers sell for.  Now I
believe if Leica were controlling the dealer's end user pricing, it
would be considered an unfair trade practice, so I'm not sure what is
going on here.  It just seems strange that Nikon and Canon prices
differ somewhat at each dealer you go to while Leica prices are
virtually identical everywhere.
