Agree. In the 1960s I went from Pentax to the new Canon FT, added a Leica M4, then traded all my Canons on a Leicaflex SL. A big, heavy beast, but great mechanical feel and spot meter. As I recall it was something like $660 in 1969. Then the prices, especially for Leicaflex lenses, really went up. So later I got a Pentax MX and the range of lenses I wanted cheaper than adding more Leica lenses, then added an LX. Many of the Leicaflex meter cells have gone wonky, as did mine, but I got it replaced with one of the rare spares. Working bodies now can be $150, but lenses are going up now that they can be used on the new Leica SL mirrorless.
Lots of people need two of each saves carrying a changing bag at the very least, ( to recover damaged film).
