I think Microsoft has adjusted the price of their development products to be quite reasonable (excluding the MSDN Ultimate Subscription). 

TFS and Visual Studio are both quite cheap for the value they give.  (However, I don't personally buy them.  My company does.  My perspective may be different if I had to shell out my own cash for them.)

But the express versions are fantastic for a free product.  (now that there is a desktop version)

Now if we could just get the product teams to listen to feedback, Visual Studio would be reasonably priced and awesome too!
