There really is something visceral about cameras, perhaps, which guarantees the future value for some of them (assuming tastes do not change).
In the 60s, the IBM Selectric typewriter was going for USD 1000. Who, today, would 'pay' more than USD 20? Really, to some, the camera is an extension of the body and a cherished one at that. There can be no other reason for the 'unwarranted' price. - David Lyga
