Now that winters here I've started looking for a telephoto lens for my 500c/m, to help shoot skiing and snowboarding with. I'm amazed at how cheap you can get a 150mm sonnar for, $250-$300 for a used C, non T*'s even cheaper! Even if the lens needs a $150 repair / adjust it still seems like a sure bargain considering how much I use these things. This is awesome, I am thinking of buying both a 150mm and a 250mm just because I can?! After seeing collector prices when looking at old Leica M's, I'm thankful that at least one part of the market hasn't been touched by "the fondler's"!
