discounts on something high in demand & low in supply? I don't think so

Not right now, obviously. I'd expect that situation to change over time, however. Didn't know how Nikon usually handles such situations. (obviously...every time is unique, I'd just never paid attention to their company)

I doubt Nikon will change the MSRP anytime soon, but if the inventory is available (as it is now) dealers may start adding discount from their own margins.

It also depends on what new cameras are introduced and their popularity.

Talk to your favourite dealer... no one is allowed to advertise below Nikon's MAP, but every store I talked to was ready to discount the D800E back in September, when they all had lots of stock.

I don't think the 800E will ever be discounted. They make too much of a limited supply and I doubt it will last as long as the D800 will, as in they'll stop manufacturing after awhile before they do the 800s.

+1

However, I noticed Amazon had them in stock last night (for a change) and did lower the price!

A Big 95 cents

Well, you might want to look at the pricing history of the d700. It's about 5 years old now and still holding its value well, as is the d300s. Seems to me that the Nikon mid-level cameras hold their value better than either end, but especially the high end.

Nikon is rather anal! don't expect price drop any time in the next 3 years. They rather make less than sell for less.

five days ago here in the uk, an online retailer (fully reptuable) had dropped the d800 price by 150 in just two days, and had dropped a touch more before i had noticed.
the E hasnt moved greatly though.
the straight 800 is now 2073 compared to the 2700 they wanted at release in march.

Price of the E is slowly starting to drop here in the UK too - mostly not in line with the 800 but I picked up an E for 2359 from Castle Cameras today which is pretty much in line with the price gap there should be between the 2 models. Finally succumbed to temptation!

certainly in the secondary market prices have dropped. saw a new e on my local cl for $2900 today, cheapest i have seen for this camera. the d600 might be cannibalizing some sales...

Best time to buy is when there is a rebate. Prices will slightly drop on used.. dunno how much though...

With that said, the camera just came out.. Perhaps by next fall a slight drop in MSRP? who knows though
