The used prices seems to be falling as if there is no bottom.

Did nikon overestimate the demand or people just don't like it and are dumping it.


It was and always will be a niche camera just like the Z9 and the Zf. The Nikon user base had a tremendous pent up demand for a competatively performing mirrorless camera. This boosted demand originally. But let's face it, like the A1 and all other flagship cameras the demand is limited. You can't sustain a camera company primarily selling flagship cameras to existing users of your brand. A1 prices have fallen even more on a percentage basis.

It will be cameras like the Z6/7 (III) that drive market share in the broader market. This is where new users will come from. I am expecting big things from Nikon's upcoming entrants into that market segment.
