Wow, thanks for that link! I've copied it to disk. I love the old catalogs that tend to show everything, and haven't been dumbed down for the lowest common denominator, the way things tend to be done nowadays.

Interesting. Prices not much different than today. Top of the line body with f/1.4 lens around 2.000 USD when adjusted for inflation. A 50/1.4 lens about 800 USD. Interestingly the 75-150 zoom two to four times as expensive as most primes (2.600 USD vs 600-1.500 USD). The longest tele almost 8.000 USD in today's money!
