It's the same in the UK, maybe its a way for them to justify the price

The UK price strategy is not at all consumer friendly for any new product launch.

Look at the D610 - Most high street retailers are selling it at £1799 and guess what - they are bundling freebies like Grip, 50mm Lens, Tripod/Battaery/bag etc. And they are showing it as free - LOL.

Such free items are mostly stuff that are either not moving and/or have high margins. Bundling with a new product helps them to make the margin even higher. Only a few retailers and Amazon are selling it at £1500 price point.

Having said that, prices in UK comes down sharply after a month or two. Most early adopters are ripped, but some people can't wait.

I am certain DF price will come down by Christmas and New Year.
