What Will Price Of X-E1 With 18-55 Be In 2 Months?

Debating on getting it now vs waiting?  Just dropped $100, and I'm wondering how much it will drop in the next few months?  Seems Fuji is putting out a lot of new stuff and it may drop even more significantly soon?

Are there going to be any X-E1s left in stock in a couple of months?

Given how close the X-E2 release was to the X-E1's, I wondered how many X-E1s were actually produced.  The X-E1 sales pricing interferes with the X-M1 at that price point; I don't see Fuji keeping this going for long.

In my case, I considered how low the used X-E1 bodies could go and decided to pull the trigger on one for $350.

Who knows?

It's already less than some point & shoot cameras.

When you come right down to it, it's a shame that it's so cheap but that's just the way the consumer electronics world works and new digital cameras are way overpriced to start with.

Someday I'll own an X-Pro2 but that day won't come until there's an X-Pro3 announced or I can buy someone's "mistake" on the used market. 

Personally, if I was looking for an X-E1, I'd get one now before all the old/new stock is gone. Sooner or later, dealers are going to be out of them.

Yeah, my guess is many people who paid a premium a few months ago are really motivated to sell now, since the price is dropping.  I expect that will continue to push prices down.  Similar thing happened to the Nex6.  Values have fallen off the face of the earth in less than a year.

I doubt there's many people that stupid. I paid a fair price for my X-E1, it does an excellent job for me, so why would I sell it?

B?H shows the X-E1 and 18-55 kit in silver to be discontinued.

The XE-1 will drop off the map is where the price will be.  The camera will be discontinued and you'll have to find it used.

In two years time the XT-1 will be a $600 body as well.  Same cycle.

My feeling it you may not be able to get the X-E1 brand new in the not too distant future.

With some purists now seeing the image quality advantage of the X-E1 over the X-E2 this has created a second-wind for the X-E1. I've already purchased my second X-E1 at half the price I bought my first and I am seriously thinking about getting a third.

My advice - if you are thinking about getting one you better act promptly.

With prices so low, many people who would ordinarily sell their E1s because they bought the T1 are just going to keep them. I know that prices have dropped so much I'm not willing to sell mine now. This will reduce the number of them on the second hand market. I can use it for back up, or carry two little little cameras with different lenses.
