Anyone else hoping this??
2

Is anyone else hoping this whole video fiasco drives prices of the R5 and R6 down faster?  I would love to pick up an R6 myself, but I was hoping it would drop down to around $2000 at some point (although I don’t think it is priced poorly at launch, I just don’t want to spend that much).  At first I worried that with these high specs and high demand, the price might take a longer time to go down.  Now with all the video stuff being on YouTube and overheating and all that I’m wondering if demand will go down a bit and prices may drop sooner than I would have thought?  I am not personally bothered by the news because I don’t do super long video clips (I do use video, but probably only 30% of the time or so, and my clips are usually less than 5 minutes).  Anyone else thinking that a quicker price drop might be possible now?  Or do you think demand will stay high despite all the bad press?
