Same is true with Sony. They are electronics companies. With 1 year release cycles they kill the value of their old product. Sony is holding value a bit better, but not great. Fuji is even very bad about holding value. I bought 8 month old XP1 for half of what it was new.

2 years later 5N is still selling for only $100 less than the original launch price on Amazon. You can't say that about any NX camera.

7 months later RX100 is still at $650 on Amazon.

You are actually making up things. Sony cameras don't lose value that easily as Samsung NX

Sure, I can buy a Sony NEX 7 kit for about $820 used (from $1350, only available for about a year), NEX 3 or 5 body only for around $150. Yes, the 5n is better, but it was priced too cheap to begin with.

Just watch, when they replace a camera every year, the value will drop pretty quick. RX100 is up high because it is popular and hasn't been out long.

I did say Sony was a bit better than Samsung in this regard, but they still are no Nikon/Canon.  If a new 5D only comes every 4 years, the previous model will hold its value longer through that period.
