Now, currencies are a funny thing but I remember about 18 months ago looking up prices for used M9's (NB - apostrophes are acceptable as plurals in very limited cases). I recall that they were about US$3000. They haven't dropped much. I followed one American auction and the camera sold for US$2,680 (eBay item number: 191890609090). Not bad - for a camera that has potential sensor issues, has no fancy features, has a noisy shutter and is over six years old. Still, I do not believe that cameras should be seen as investments in and of themselves. If anything, the photos you take are the real investments. And BTW, used 6x6 Hasselblads are not cheap, either. I dare say that they've gotten slightly more expensive.
