I don't change my cameras often, every 3-4 years. But regardless of all these observation you made, I wanted to discuss the plunge in value, and not include any philosophical discussion.

A clear example is how apple laptops hold their value quite well or some japanese cars. Do you think Apple customers were happy when they discontinued the ipad 3 after just a few months? It's a similar thing with the mid-range NEX.

People need cars and a lot more people need iPads and laptops than a camera. The demand for used cameras is low so it will never hold it's value.

I have seen a lot of good deals on used cameras and still some even good ones do not sell on craigslist.
