Well, value is in the eye of the beholder, and market prices only give a
idea of an objects value.

My comment was more geared at how font designers earn their money. Once
a photographer has honed her skills, she can produce a larger variety of
than a fontdesigner can produce different fonts in the same time.
usually sell different photos to different people, while a successful
is able to sell the same font to many people. That's why it's a much larger
sacrifice for a fontdesigner to give away a quality font for free than for a 
photographer to give away a photo, IMHO.
