Re: I just don't get these 2001 prices??

It is not cheaper to make anything. It is possible to buy higher spec electronics at the same prices, but mechanical mass production costs the same now as in 2001, more if you account for wage inflation and Yen values.

How come cars are no cheaper now than in 2001?

Why are you pro's still saying its ok for Nikon/Canon to charge these silly prices!!

Technology has jumped so much over the years and prices for all these components in these cameras have come way down and yet you are still ok paying what you did 10 years ago??

Yes, I know the components used are better but it's just simply easier and cheaper to make them now!

Look at the Sonys a77. A 24mp sensor in a really nice camera with many cool features. It's $1400. I know, I know, it does not compete with the D4 but please don't tell me that it costs that much more to make the D4. (a77 also has incredible 60p 1080 hd video too)

Even the full frame Sony a900 with 24mp is less than 3 grand. (with new one on the way for probably not much more)

It's time for you "working pros" to tell Nikon/Canon to stop with their over inflated camera prices on these so called "pro cameras" as this is 2012 not 2001!
