I am not an "interested prospective buyer" and so would not have the gall to ask them. But I'm curious particulary since we all know that Leica's don't come cheaply, and Leica *will* tell us the price! Does anybody know what is the going rate on the Alpa? >> David: I'm sure it's like asking the price in one of those restaurants where the waiters speak in an indiscernable foreign accent.....if you have to ask, you don't have any business asking!! It's good to see them back in business, though. Alpa made some unusual beasts that have a special appeal all their own. I had the oppertunity to handle one at a recent camera show, and it had a solid feel rivaled only by the Leicaflex SL. Jay P.
