I asked the question ” Are cameras too expensive” in a previous post. I asked the same question of the forum members at Dpreview Open Talk forum The answers were many and varied, with a goodly number feeling that the pricing wasn’t too un-affordable. There were also a goodly number of folks that said yes or felt that they would be more comfortable with some form of price reduction.
Folks from the larger markets , such as the US do have the luxury of large volumes allowing for better pricing, whilst smaller markets can pay significantly more for the same product even when taking exchange rates into account.
Essentially after this debate my feeling has remained unchanged on this topic. I will revisit it in future posts as we see how pricing trends continue.
