    It seems that they really haven't come down in price thaat much (for the case of the Rollei, atleast).

    I looked at some online calculators and it looks like 187 pounds is ~ 300 USD which is approximately ~2k USD when inflation is taken into account.
    Except that the exchange rate was $2.80-$2.40 to the pound in 1967 (there was a devaluation in there then). So the dollar equivalent would have been more like $500.

    It is all a moot point. We live in a different time/ circumstance/ reality/ value system/ everything else now. It was what it was/ it is what it is. One thing for certain, or maybe anyway, don 't buy new.

    I just took a look into a B&H catalogue from the late 90s.

    Hasselblad 501cm+80CB+A12 = 2,695 USD
    Body only = 1,585 USD

    Hasselblad 503cw+80CF+A12 = 4,211 USD
    Body only = 1,797 USD

    Hasselblad 903 SWC+Finder+A12 = 5,681 USD

    Hasselblad 203FE Body only = 5,358 USD

    Hasselblad 205FCC Body only = 6,991 USD

    (Planar 110/2 would add 3,731 USD to this, E12-Back would add further 974 USD)

    I like to compare prices in terms of the average wage at the time.
