Pentax 645 lens prices 1986

While cleaning out some cabinets, I found a 47th St. Photo catalog from 1986 ( Ok, I donít clean out things very often). I thought forum members might enjoy the Pentax MF prices from that time. Interestingly, the 645 lenses cost about the same then as they do in todayís used market.

That is really quite fortunate. Many other lenses of that vintage go for more now than they did then. I would also not mind being able to get a Spotmeter V for $119!
