Re: Just sold V1, 50% Depreciation - 6 mos

I bought my J1 early on, but Nikon had lens rebates so effectively I got the 10/2.8 for free. I recently added a used 30-110 and FT1 from a local shop.

Those biggest hit with the drop in value are early adopters that didn't get bundles or rebates which is true of electronics that are not "durable". I was looking at getting a new TV. The model I have been considering has dropped from $2600 at release to a current Amazon price of $1400. And that is to buy the set new.

Anybody that expected the first gen of any new line of cameras to retain value like a pro DSLR is unrealistic. I just hope you got you $450 worth of use. Otherwise, it was a true waste.
Taking pictures of what I want to...
