It's been said that early on, Leica's were about two month's salary (of course, that's a relative term), but that it's stayed right about at that relative figure. Considering the price of a lens and body. I remember that in the early 70s, a Leica wasn't THAT much more than other cameras and lenses. I do remember an R4 in '83 was $1,200 with Passport. An F3 was about $700 if I remember correctly, and a Pentax LX was $800. - -- Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO http://www.ponyexpress.net/~ewelch Asking if computers can think is like asking if submarines can swim.
