If today's computer times is anything to go by, Panasonic may be launching the above cameras at Comex. But that is at recommened retail price. Wonder if AP or MS would be able to get hold of some stock and offer them at a lower price... :sweat:

nope, expect the replacement model to maintain the price. just like the canon G1 to G2 to G3 to G5 to G6, the launch prices abt the same over the years.

Actually, as technology advances, it should get cheaper. Or at least, maintain the price, but pack in more and better features.

Just as an example:

Minolta's 7Hi, A1 and A2 series were all at the $1800 range when first released. Then later, the A2's price dropped to $1350. The A200 was subsequently released at this price point, and now the D5D DSLR (with 28-100 equiv lens) can be had for less than $1.4k.

As much as I really like prosumer cams in general, I think the FZ30 is just a bit too expensive for what it is. For just slightly more, consumers can now reach for DSLRs from all the major manufacturers.

HAHA... Heard got manual features n stuff like that.. for it's size, that's quite a feat.. maybe that's why u're paying $999 for it..
