    Unpopular opinion: rui...I mean "cinivizing" copies of lenses that are already rare is making this problem worse. Getting ever harder to find "original" copies. Reversible mods only, folks.

    Owning a set of Canon FD's and Leica R's, I'd say that the demand will always be there even if it doesn't grow, or it contracts, the supply of vintage lenses is only going to decrease.

    I can't see the prices sliding any time soon - corrections yes, but a complete collapse? no.

    Would have thought perhaps niche chinese manufacturers might not care about using lead in lenses for the vintage "look"?
