That's okay, Bud.  In the mid-70's I traded a new-in-the-box M5 I had gotten

for $450 for a beat up Nikon F (which I later gave away).   As an M4 owner,

I was afraid the new, radical, funky-looking M5 would have no resale value." 

In 1986 I sold a black enamel M4 w/ 35mm Summicron for $750 to finance a 
Nikon F3 and motor . . . My head still hurts from banging it against the wall
