This trikes me as strange given that it is a new product. I'm not very familiar with Panasonic (have a G12 and lust after the FZ200) but is the venerable LX5 preferred by Panasonic owners?

The RX100 is $648 (full price) and will likely stay there. A bit pricy for what it is to me --- don't get me wrong, I want one !!!

Is it just different corporate cultures --- I mean the G15 is probably still over $400 despite the price of this coming down.

Thanks for views and honesty. Newbie.

I don't think I'd try to read too much into it at this point.  The cameras is brand new and while there are a few enthusiastic early adopters posting on the web, it doesn't really have a track record yet.  And the discount has only been in the United States where it's that frantic time of year when retailers are desperate to increase their bottom line.   The sales have been very short-lived, so they haven't lost much in the grand scheme of things.  3 months from now, most people will have forgotten about the sale, if they knew about it in the first place.  Let's see what happens when the price stabilizes in 2013 before making any final judgments.
