Would it stand to reason that the price for the EX1 may drop a bit in the next few months?

I wouldn't be surprised if this was without any cards though, which would make the price closer to $9000 compared to an Ex-1 with 2 - 8G cards.

Philip. any idea about the hard disk? Have you tested that yet and when it will be available, price, etc?

We had the hard disk units in the booth at NAB. Works like a charm. Sony had not set pricing on that unit as of NAB.

Also, FWIW, I believe Sony got the message on the $13K price tag. The issue was raised by many, including myself.

Maybe they will also get the message regarding the outrageous price of the SxS cards.

Wow - so much for $13K! I really think that, if this price holds, it will drive used EX1 prices down, at least for a little bit while people are getting rid of EX1's in favor of the EX3. Nice work, Sony!

Oh, and the expensive SxS cards? Seems to me to be a good argument for going with the Flash XDR or nanoFlash.

I'll be glad to buy a used ex1 located in the US to help someone transition to a ex3. Let me know

I talked to one of the reps @ NAB he said the hard disc unit would be around $1000.00 US.

At the current NAB to Real Life exchange rate that would be (8320:13000)x$1,000 = $ 640. ;-)

if the EX3 was first thought to be $13,000 or even $11,500, then at $8,300, that's 72% of list, which makes little sense as the EX1 is about 85% of list selling now at 6449.

either sony lowered the prices for the EX3 or a markdown of the EX1 is in order. at the same 72%, then EX1 may soon sells for 5400 in the US

Maybe the HPX-500 rebate put some pricing pressure on the market.

My dealer in San Rafael CA, Snader & Assoc., put the price exactly the same as B&H $8230 and said that Sony had told them late July.
I'm happy that includes at least 1 8G card.

All I can say is, "WOW!" I was close to ordering the new Canon XL H1a as I am someone who wants a shoulder-cam so that ruled out the EX1 and I thought the EX3 was out too because of the $13k price tag, but this new info is great news indeed.

Kudos to Sony!
