Remember that at the time price fixing of products was legal and common. Discounts were often given by dealers but could not be advertised.
Prochnow gives prices in DM for the time the cameras were released. While converting these prices to U.S. ones can not be done directly the _ratio_ is interesting.



It certainly can be done, Richard. This was the era of the "four-to-one Mark" -- four Marks to the dollar. So, divide the DM prices by four, then go over to any of the inflation calculators on the Web, and Bob's your uncle. DM360 in 1954, for instance, would be around $620 today.
