It seems they're dropping the price because of low sales numbers, not a new model. When Amazon does model drops they're generally in the $20 range/day and cap out quickly over a weekend or less. When the algorithm tries to move inventory there's a much jerkier and less predictable decline.

I actually know a few people who try to "game" Amazon that way, adding things into their shopping cart and removing them, putting a competitor in, until the price drops a little. This is all rumor and speculation but I wouldn't put it past Amazon to have a "haggling" setup for those things.

We'll see in a month if the price has dropped and remained under $1k.

This says nothing about Amazon's inventory levels but wasn't there an implication somewhere (by Ricoh themselves?) that Ricoh are making all the K-3 units they can? I presume they would only do that if they have or expect a matching order level.
