    Is it just me?

    Is it just me or does it seem that the price of Leica R glass has gone through the roof?!

    Last year I made the mistake of selling off my 90mm Summicron and 135mm Elmarit, and have reconsidered and want to replace them.

    The price of the Summicron has increased by what seems like 150% ! I was briefly considering the APO Summicron but the prices on ebay seem more than
    what they sold for new!

    R glass prices seems to fluctuate with news/hope of an R lens solution. Prices haven't gone up so much in Seattle, and there's a lot of glass to be had. However, given Leica's proposal of an interchangeable lens option with some mention of R lens capacity, prices "might" go up....but then again, they'll probably equilibrate downards the longer there's no true R10/digital R....

    I think it's as much that the value of fiat money is falling.

    Yes. I think that is it. It is part of the reason I want the glass.
