Re: Nikon DF, Why is the price so high?

The prediction is that this is something of a niche product. Nikon would have priced it to recover development, marketing and distribution costs for a product with a limited market. How long it will stay at this level is difficult to predict. If the camera attracts a great deal of interest but insufficient sales Nikon may resort to a wider lens bundling to stimulate sales. If that doesn't work they may be forced into price distress to kick start it. In the short term I can't see Nikon pulling large chunks off the price early as this would reflect poorly on the product and erode its market positioning.
