STU, where do you see the FX7 for $2800, as there isn't even an "email me a better price" link like for the V1U?

The MSRP for the GL2 was 3000 dollars and its street price ends up being around the same as the FX7s street price. That alone says that youre getting a very good deal for the FX7.

I saw the FX7 for $3599 (B&H) just a day or so ago- seems like it just went down some!

That's the special price for Photo Plus Expo...

What's interesting is that most of the PPE discounts seem to be $50 to $100 off regular prices, but the FX7 is about $700 cheaper for Photo Plus attendees...that seems almost too good not to be a mistake.

I could have probably found a round-trip ticket from Germany for $600 and still saved $100 if I'd gone. Of course, I'd be $200 in the hole if the airport had a Krispy Kreme.

It's a good thing I didn't see it at B&H at that price- I might have bought it instead of the A1.

Anyone have one of these guys yet?

I checked the sonyhdv forusm early today and the V1 @ bhphoto was 3999$,

I just checked however and its back to 4199$ (after requesting a better price via email).

For 3999$ that makes it extremly competitive form a price perspective compared to the Canon XH-A1!

I jumped and locked one in for that price. I've got some stuff to shoot and I'm going to put it off till this thing arrives next month. :)

Spare a thought for us in the UK.

Currently the V1e is priced at 2510 (no tax) so your price of $4199 should be 2234 before tax for us. That's nearly $520 more even before we've added the dreaded (VAT) on!

I've seen many other V1e dealers charging much more!

Living in the UK can be decidedly expensive...

TT

What happens when I run out of kidney's to sell? *Prays for breakthrough is stem cell research*

?

$2510 - $2234 = $276

Don't feel too bad, you will need to pay state sales tax in most US locations, plus city sales tax in some others. But to make a fair comparison I think we would need to look at other cost of living items, like the national health insurance which I believe you enjoy in the UK :-)

We still use good ol' s here in the UK.

Difference is 276 x 1.88 current exchange rate = $520ish (dollars)

We pay 17.5% VAT on top. :(

So a V1e would cost you blokes 2950 (inc VAT) x 1.88 = $5546 kerching!!!!

That's not too too bad.

In canada the V1 will cost 5600$ USD + 14% taxes = $6384 cdn ~=

$5700 USD!!!!! I hate the prices here!

Sony accessories even @ employee prices in Canada are still more expensive then B & H! :(
