If Nikon and Leica were to agree to price fix, that would be illegal. A 
company has every right to set the  price of the product they make, and 
dealers don't have to sell it if they find that offensive. Nothing stops a 
dealer from offering a rebate of their own, though. I bet the dealers like 
it. The profit margin on Leica equipment isn't that big.

That being said, at the Cape Cod Seminar, prices were being negotiated by 
the sponsor Carl D.
