Re: What price?

Price is only suggested by Oly and retailers today have figured out that people will pay through the nose to get the latest and greatest tech.

I imagine that Oly will in fact be offering holiday rebates tru to form as per past experience, $100 on the E-5 body and additional rebates on select lenses and accessories, probably a mail in but possibly 'instant' to spur initial sales.

If there is a very slow demand for the E-5 and retailers are not moving enough inventory then they (the retailers) will start dropping the price. I see the retail price dropping $50 -$100 after a few months but the suggested msrp will remain the same until OLy is well into the model run and about to replace it like they did with the E-3 which stayed at $1699 for over 2 years.
