It's all relative, Tina; ten days ago I woke up (we're just north of Saratoga 
Springs NY) to a light spring snowfall, dropped 2" on us. Mind, our property 
is 5 1/2 miles from the SE corner of the Adirondack State Park so we have 
some mild elevation. Have I mentioned on this list that the Park covers an 
area larger than Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion Canyon, Yosemite and 
Yellowstone National Parks combined? Over 3,000,000 acres.

To return to matters Leica, I just turned up a bit of memorabilia, a snippet 
camera store ad, don't know which, from a photo magazine, don't know which, 
from decades ago, don't know which. Here are their prices for "used lenses 
for Leica, Canon etc":

21mm Super Angulon, $146.50; 
35mm Summaron for M3, $32.50; 
35mm Summicron f/2 W.A., $118.75; 
50mm Summarit f/1.5, 49.50; 
50mm Elmar f/3.5, $28.50; 
50mm Dual-Range Summicron f/2, $109.50; 
85mm Summarex f/1.5, $108.50; 
90mm Summicron f/2 shade, $139.50;
90mm Elmar f/4 rigid, $38.50; 
90mm Elmarit f/2.8, $108.50; 
125mm Hektor f/2.5 for Visoflex, $118.00; 
135mm Elmar f/4 telephoto, $108.50; 
400mm Telyt f/5 for Visoflex, $248.50; 
Visoflex II with 5x Magnifier, $74.75.  

OK you leicosleuths, how about a time frame? Remember these are used prices. 
Also note no statement as to condition, let alone serial numbers. I don't 
have a date so your guess is as good as mine!
