2060, at $5 per year, it cost $500 back in the 60's .... or
you need to check your math ?

Acoarst, even if the math is OK [Live long, and prosper!]
the example math I just offered is for 100 yrs of pinhole
photography ... unless Leica lenses were free back in the
60's ... which they most certainly were NOT

P.S. I know it's a zombie thread that i was reading just
for amusement, but then this $5/yr thing caught my eye
and well the rest is history, or at least the walking dead.
