A mint M8 goes easily for 2000 euros on eBay. Surely the M bodies depreciate faster, but far slower than any other brand.

After 8 months, a NEX5 is now found at 180 euros second hand on eBay, when it was costing 800 euros new.

So if a M8 goes for 2000 EUR on ebay now and new it was around 6000 EUR, this means it lost 4000 EUR in value. This would have bought you at least 5 NEX and you would not even need to worry about the resell value but have had a new NEX every year.

This to me does not make the M8 look that good when it comes to it's depreciation.
