| p.3 #5 · Used D700 prices after D800 is out? |
Or maybe you're just reading more into it than I wrote. I think a price drop is certain. Based on the usefulness of the camera I'd predict it's small, but experience tells me it's always more than this. I've owned so many cameras in the past that lost almost half their resale value when the next model came out - the Canon 1D, 1Ds, 1D2, 1Ds2, Leica DMR, Leica M8, Mamiya ZD - that I know from experience that used sale values drop more than rational analysis would predict. It's simply a matter of life. Buy a DSLR and it'll lose half its value by the time the next model ships. I've made too many predictions against it, and been wrong each time, that I've learned this lesson the hard way.
