m43rds run various models across a spectrum of prices

its usual to find older product on the cheaper side of pricing
fresher releases on the high side

Sony face the same issue

In principle yes, that´s the way the market usually works. But when a company like Sony decides that it is time to increase their market share even fresh models can be aggressively priced. The NEX-3N with kit lens is a steal...

I dont disagree, it is real value
but it is so placed, and so funded, to accomplish a market objective for Sony
I think that might be battling low end Canon and Nikon
and likely its designed as a very cheap build from the beginning

we have seen these things before from Sony when they got into FF
but that was just pricing
likewise Nikon arent running out stock of the now much older D3100,
its their model to push the market for whatever reason

everybody has their special model to shape the market
and usually they do this with aggressive pricing as that stimulates demand
Olympus were doing the same with EPL1, Panny with GF1
even OMD EM5 may get its turn

but probably not just yet
