id be surprised if the new versions of the photo have any impact on the value of the originals, the first limited edition prints will allways be the sought after ones, as is the case with most things books, stamps, coins so i would not be worried at all if i owned an original.

There may be truth in that...

End of the day, yes this is true and any art investor who is buying from an alive artist must consider that the artist could still produce more art, effectively reducing the value of the existing art simply because it is less scarce.

It's like buying autographs, if the famous person is still alive there's always a chance they could hit financial hardship and start doing them in every mall in America as has happened with a few sports stars.

point being if you want a truly limited edition buy from dead artists only

"I would not buy from any artist that makes multiple sets of limited editions but that is a buyers choice."

I should correct my statement, as I have bought a limited edition print that was from the fifth set of limited (and signed) edition prints from a photographer. Then again I didn't pay anywhere near what this guy paid. Anyway I'm still very happy with my Ansel Adam print of Half Dome.

There's a new one born every minute. Why would anyone buy prints of a kid's bike taken at ground level?

"One of the prints, a 5-foot version of “Memphis (Tricycle)” (shown above), was sold for $578,500. Sobel owns an original 17-inch limited edition print of that photo — a print that he reportedly paid $250,000 for."

And what if the photog's starving grandson who got evicted needs $$$ to pay rent? Does he have a right to re-print the photos taken by grandpa 50 years ago?
"who are concerned about the value of their collections being tanked by reprint-happy photographers"

if you needs the dough, well...
