Oh dear. I can see my future clouded by a series of law suits brought by 
disgruntled spouses.

Does this also apply to a near new, late model, low mileage, pristine
Hasselblad 501CM body, matching film magazine and Zeiss 80mm CFE Planar
lens at less than market price?

Will you explain why I should buy the camera to SWMBO and Lord High
Keeper of the Purse Strings?

Anyone trying to justify spending their hard earned cash at the moment
should take note of the gold price which is going up and up.  Among
other things it's a pretty good indicator of inflation expectations and
given the size of government deficits around the World I'd say it's spot

What does this mean for Leica users?  It means that prices are likely to
continue to rise and it makes little sense to put off buying that piece
of kit you've always wanted, especially if are on a fixed income since
it will only move out of your reach later.  This only works if you've
got the cash;  buying on credit is as always a very silly thing to do
since one effect of rising inflation will be rising interest rates.

I really wanted that Nocilux 0.95 and this is the best justification I
could think of. I hope it works for you too.  At least if the markets
are wrong (this is not unknown), you'll have some great stuff to take
pictures with.
