Price Difference

I was checking prices at that NY video retailer we all know and noticed that the price difference between the AX2000 and the NX5U (with the FMU included) is a mere $500 (After a rebate, of course). The MSRPs are nowhere near that.


I honestly see no point in purchasing the AX2000 given that small margin and the fact that the NX5U offers many more professional features.


Is that expected to change once pre-orders end?

Well the rebate on the FMU is only through the end of next month see we'll see.

And pre orders are moot right now, as B&H just announced that the NX5 is now in stock.

In-Stock is a welcome change.

Either way, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the price difference. Initial press releases from Sony had me wondering if the NX5U with the FMU would be worth a $2000 difference.

Considering one gets a short shotgun mic with the NX5U, the price difference for such loss of capability amounts to just a few dollars. I got the NX5U as it made a lot more sense.
