Re: Price of FF mirrorless
In reply to Section10, Jul 10, 2013

Nobody here said $4k would be justified. I said that, even being lots of money (and probably pure speculation, since it's a rumors and past rumors always spoke about ~$3k...) it's way less than the only competition. Honestly I wouldn't care since I could not afford it even if at $2k... 

I don't think the cost of the RX1 can be used as an actual reference though... The lens has been conceived around the sensor (or the other way around... whatever) and the conversion to IC would tremendously affect the project, making it a new project from scratches.

No, the price of a FF mirrorless is not 'just over half' the only other one. You're referring to Leica which is wildly known for being overpriced and you're forgetting RX1 which is mirrorless and FF for $2800.

In theory, If you take an RX1 ($2800) and take away the lens (-$1000) add an EVF (+$400) you're left with a $2200 body. If they make it even better with stabilization etc..it will add to the cost. Why a FF would NECESSARILY be $4000 is out of theory, most FF bodies start at $2800+- actually...mirrorless can justifiably be more for the "new technology" part....so I'd guess around $3200.

But at $4000 for a small size FF, the RX1 will reign. I'd rather pay for an RX1 with a perfect lens than $1200 and no lens at all.
