Hi

but that's minimum price it will always diverge downwards as more unit are sold.
conversely the high price will tend to diverge upwards for the same reason.

Loss leading and High priced local offering (to enable 40% discount adverts across chains) will drive minimum and maximum figure to strange points.

The average price has remained surprisingly constant over the period.

On day 1 of the k5 Europe release I didn't pay 1500 eu or even 2/3 that price!!

Awaldram please watch your own tag carefully! The blue line starts at 1500/1600 !! and in june 2011 tips the 1k.

And this one:

BTW: have been following the P* line for very long, love it for durability but the mediocre implementation of the (non flexible) flash auto setting bugger me. It's just not up to N* standards. So the k7d / sb700 fills that gap now.
