$1k for such limited camera was too much. Not interested in DP1 but DP3 sounds nice. I will wait for the right price on that one too

If there is one consistent complaint on this forum and almost every other at dpreview, it is that the price is too high. When it goes lower, it is still too high. Free is just about right.

No wonder the entire industry is close to tanking.

I agree, Laurence,

I wish that some (maybe most) people realize what actually take to create things.

Most of us never did, so expectations are sometimes unreasonable.

I also agree that the price is reasonable.

But ... you have to take everything into perspective.

The price for compact cameras is moving down fast today. Its not common to see $1K for a compact camera.
