I agree Sony is a strong company, but is not universally dominant. All manufacturer are having to work harder to sell cameras. This is evident when you see the cash back and discounts for popular models.

"Popular models" don't really need cash back and discounts. Not all manufacturers are having to work hard to sell cameras. This is evident when you see the lack of cash back and discounts for popular models.

A7III: $1,998.00 (no discount)

6400: $898.00 (no discount)

EOS R: $1,999.00 ($300 discount. Also includes free EF adapter, $100 value)

EOS M50: $599.00 ($200 discount)

Nikon Z6: $1,796.95 ($200 discount. Also includes free FTZ adapter, $246.95 value)

Nikon Z7: $2,796.95 ($600.00 discount. Also includes free FTZ adapter, $246.95 value)

This makes sense, of course. After all, popular models sell themselves. Why would you need to discount or give cash back on a product that will sell well without discounting and cash back?
