My personal opinion is that a1 is heavily overpriced. Yes that's a fantastic camera but current price is absurd.

I am sympathetic on price. It'd very nice if $1000 less that I initially want to wait for. I sold A9+grip and A7r III about 3 months ago to fund A1, so not that terrible for me as A1 is much more than A9+A7r III combined. Now with the trip booked at end of May, I could not wait but just ordered A1 two days ago that is backordered now (estimated 2~4 weeks). I need two cameras in the trip.

Sony can leverage the price as long as demand is still high and no competitors at the moment. But eventually Sony will slash price after demand is down and after Canon released R3 and Nikon released Z9. So wait if you could.
