    The original 1961 price for the Canon 50mm f/0.95 lens-only was (JPY) 57,000. Today that's equivalent to (JPY) 292,000, or (USD) 3,792.27.

    Wonder what the actual going price for one of these is now?

    Aaaaaaarghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    This thread is so phuqing boring - I joined APUG as I thought is was a forum for people working with silver based photography, not camera collectors and camera clubistes

    Cameras are for the preparation of negatives for printing, not costume jewelery

    Though the 0.95 is notorious for being incapable of delivering a sharp image at *any* aperture...

    Are you serious??
    Mine seriously rivals my 50 lux asph from f4. It's seriously sharp. I wasn't expecting that from this lens but there it is.

    It depends on the age group, and nerdiness (which can sidestep the age group estimations).

    If your subject or conversationalist is an approaching elderly, they beam with respect and nostalgia to see someone using a speed graphic or rolleiflex. I've had lots of good conversations with people just because I was carrying or using such a camera.

    If your audience is high schoolers or young adults, the manual 35mm slr is bling, because they know what it is, where the speed or rolleiflex is a little too obscure. a film camera is a step up academically and skillwise from normal digital camera tools. It demands some confidence and produces authenticity.

    If your crowd is a large format gathering, bling is brass, fine wood, etc..

    Okay, I've got this figured out. We're missing one major bling factor: rims. With that in mind, if you want ultimate bling, complete the following steps.

    1. Steal (for street cred) a high-altitude camera out of a U2 or a Blackbird, or something along those lines.
    2. Have half of it nickel plated, half of it gold plated, and have your name inlaid on it with diamonds.
    3. Steal (again, street cred) a late-model Caddy.
    4. Strap the pimped-out camera to the top, Blues Brothers-style. Use alligator skin straps.
    - and this is the important part -
    5. Set the Caddy up on 24's and hydraulics, because the hydraulics (are you ready for this?) will give you tilt and shift movements.
    6. Soak up the respect.
