That's interesting. Also, it's not very easy to find the $399 at Adorama. If you go there, search the camera, it's still $896. Strange.

I bought mine used, locally, two weeks ago for $500. It included the 10-30mm, 10mm and the flash. I thought I did extremely well and I still feel so, but had this happened two weeks ago I probably would have bought everything new. Just part of the risk in buying digital cameras, I guess.

For what it's worth, I also bought an NEX-7 a month ago. Now, to see the NEX-6 containing 99% of the features at a lower price with an awesome pancake lens included is a bit of a slap in the face. Do I blame Sony? Not really; again it's the risk we take.

Sure hope the V-line of the 1 system continues, because I find the EVF a treat to use and makes the camera worth carrying over the J1/J2.
