If you find the price too high then simply don't buy it. Sony are making a lot of marketing mistakes at the moment - both in terms of information supplied to customers and pricing ($100 pre-release price drop on A5000). Sadly the only way they will learn to sharpen-up their act is if they see sales failing to meet expectations

UK price still looks like a bargain here, but that's only because all cameras/gadgets are more expensive here!

If it wasn't so easy to check international prices it would look cheap for what it seems to offer. Trouble is, as a regular visitor to DPR, the $ price is often quoted - then the UK price starts to look expensive.

It's not a Sony problem - electronics across the board are more expensive in the UK. There are reasons for this but none seem to explain the extent of the gulf in prices between us and the US.
