Yep in $200 in 1976 money = $795.66 in todays money. Conversely speaking $48.51 in 1976 money = $200 in todays purchasing power. So that Nikon SP was not really all that cheap. Plus I remember spending what amounted to a whole months pay on a Nikon F2AS when I was in the Army. Back when I could have bought the then brand new F3HP for less money.
