Same is true with Sony. They are electronics companies. With 1 year release cycles they kill the value of their old product. Sony is holding value a bit better, but not great. Fuji is even very bad about holding value. I bought 8 month old XP1 for half of what it was new.

2 years later 5N is still selling for only $100 less than the original launch price on Amazon. You can't say that about any NX camera.

Actually, a point to make about the 5n, is when it was just 1 year old I could buy it for $400 new on closeout as an 18-55mm kit.  It has actually gone back up just a bit since then.  I think the 5n kit retailed for $700 according to the press release here in 2011, so that is a drop of $300 in one year, not $100.  All the clicking video issues did not help that camera.
