A member here posted that he bought the 550 in 1987 in London for £150.

Inflation adjusted last year that would have been £425 .https://www.dpreview.com/articles/4340088218/billingham-marks-40-years-of-history

Yes, I bought my 550 second hand but in mint condition, around 1992-3. I cannot remember how much it cost me but I think it was certainly under £150 and around £400 would seem to be an appropriate updating of the new price from then but the current prices of £600 was a shock and seems outrageous.

They are the Leica of camera bags. The bag is the same price as everyone elses, but the label costs £500
