    I haven't noticed it with camera bodies (but I haven't bought a lot lately), but I have seen it with K-mount and M42-mount lenses. With Pentax' backwards compatibility digital shooters have figured out that a lot of manual-focus lenses are very good. I've particularly noticed this is in standard portrait lengths, like 75-135mm.
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.

    There's no slackening of prices on some stuff - mamiya 7 gear for example. RZ67 stuff used is pretty consistent too.

    Granted, we've lost a lot film-wise and paper-wise, but it's not as bad as it might seem. There's still tons of great reasons to shoot and use what is available.

    You cannot be serious, can you? Where are these ads for it, and where is "EVERYONE" still selling it?

    Are you sure you are not thinking of TX? TXP was announced as discontinued months ago, and it sold out at both my local Samy's locations and at Freestyle within a few days of Kodak's announcement. B&H, Adorama, Freestyle, and Samy's do not have it listed online either. It can even be somewhat hard to find in any quantity on E-Bay a lot of the time.

    Fuji still list it on their U.S.A. Website, but I believe they announced its discontinuance over a year ago. I agree about it. It is one of the best color films ever made.

    So much got discontinued so quickly that I could not afford to stock up on all of it. I stashed plenty or Reala, out of fear that it will go away. I would like to have a good stash of Pro 800Z, T64, and TXP, though.

    I think that the US prices for Hasselblads has been stable for a while. They were still dropping two years ago when I bought my equipment. Since then they have risen slightly.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    Pentax Lenses are getting outrageous prices IMO. It's a Dutch Tulip Market. Asking prices of $1400- 1500 for an 85mm(pentax)???? That's an ounce of GOLD or better!! Now I ask you.. if you had an ounce of gold TODAY would you buy/exchange it for one PentaxMF lens? And use it? In the field? Without a prophylactic?

    And you used to get a bargain on C*L not so true anymore. The few local pawn shops I've visited don't have any film cameras cause they don't loan on ''em. may get lucky and see some lenses or digicams. So what does that mean... the needful can't get the cash ticket so they figure they try to max it on the classifieds.

    Although, I have been foolish spending a couple of ounces on crap film cameras/accessories/film in the last year. KICK ME!
