I do assume though that they have quite healthy margins on the A9. They can probably afford to sell it cheaper if they have to.
    I'd tend to agree with this. One other thing Sony faces is the "Hammer Nails" reputation of the Canikon pro beasts.

    In USA the A7RII price has dropped about $500 in 2 years so not really 50%. Not even the A7 is at 50% yet 4 years later.

    It was a price drop of the A7R2 with about +40% in Europe.

    So if we assume the A9 drops $1000 in 2 years from US$4500 to US$3500 that would amount to an average loss of US$42 per month. Hmm, quelle horreur!
    With best regards, K-H.

    And even at Amazon.de you can get it meanwhile fr €2549.-

    https://www.amazon.de/Sony-ILCE7RM2B-CEC/dp/B010THXVNQ

    So hey, Sony A9 now €4500.- in maybe 18 months €2700.- ??? There is hope, although I would prefer that prices stay a bit more stable.

    Maybe the laws are different in EU but stateside gray market gets you no warranty or official support so I don't really consider that a viable option for myself. Your level of acceptable risk for expensive electronics may be different than mine and yes the ~2600 euros pricing through Amazon is about in line with stateside pricing with warranty (~$2700 USD) but again this is pricing after nearly 2 years so I'd say that pricing is fairly stable. For comparison you can often get gray market 1DxII's for ~$4500-5000 in the USA but I don't personally consider that a viable option either even if the camera is "bulletproof."

    Lowest i have seen was from e infinity on ebay. They offered (just briefly) it for 1850 shipped.

    Now it is ~2050. They make a profit on this.

    This gives an indication of the prices in Asia.

    I don't give too much on DXOMark tests but this one at least shows that the A9 is outperforming the Nikon D5 and the Canon 1DX2 - that are the real competitors obviously.

    Great job SONY

    3,299 would be even better and that would be exactly 2,000 less than the list prices here!
