guess its been in stock at adorama for two days straight!! Wonder when and by how much the price will drop in time...
Ricoh gear doesn't seem to have too many price drops and a fairly slow product cycle so I wouldn't expect to see the price budget for a while.
1) its obviously selling very well, and 2) its already $300+ cheaper than Nikon's A
I would imagine demand is starting to stabilize though because as cool of little camera as it is, its still a pretty small market niche of enthusiast, and forum types, and once everyone like you and me get one, that initial demand will be filled.
Hopefully the GW3 is going to be a bit easier to find in time as I really want one, as do most GR users, which is something I think may have surprised Ricoh. They've offered tele and WA conversion lenses for lots of past models and never really seemed to catch on, but the GW3 seems especially decent, and gives a 21mm equiv APS-C mirrorless for $1000, which when you compare it to a Fuji 14mm F2.8 for the lens along, is an awesome value.
Honestly I bought the camera more because I plan to use it at 21mm rather than its native 28mm. Paired with the RX1 it should make a great 21/35 combo, and then if I just upgrade my DP2m to the 75mm DP3m I'll have my 3 lens prime trifecta
