Thats exactly with import duties and VAT here 6099.

No reason to get excited yet. But the new trend is highly appreciated.

Since i am located in switzerland, the VAT is 7% and not 19% as rest of europe, so it is not so important.
regular price for EX1 here in switzerland is around $8400, it is about the same price you get in euros.
add some accessories (battery, wide angle) and you better jump to NY to get it.

I'd rather prefer Singapore or Tokyo. Anyone with a current price there?

yes globalmediapro is rating EX1 at $5,790.00
but since this seller has very mid rating, for sure you better need to go to New-zealand by yourself.

Starting to sound like Sony has something new on the burner or why would they discount a great selling camera?

I'm sure sales are slowing with the economy the way it is. This camera has at least another 2-3 years in it. About the only thing that would really shake things up is if they changed the on-board codec to allow an intra-frame. Or if they were working on an SDHC back end.

It's possible they are working on something to compete favorably with the Panasonic HMC-150.

I agree Perrone it won't go off the market too great a camera for the money but it might be tweaked. OK enough of me speculating.

Hi

I was told the EX3 has dramatically slowed down EX1 sales and that there are lots of
EX1's sitting in warehouses. They are just trying to move them.

Makes sense. I wonder what woud happen if they priced it the same as the HVX200a or the HPX170...

And I wouldn't be surprised if we see an EX-5 at NAB 2009 but I doubt it would be a replacement for 1 or 3. I think product development may slow given the economy (depending on how long that lasts). I don't think we'll see replacement for EX-1 until NAB 2010 and it could be even longer.

Look at how long the HVX200 was around before even a 200a hit the market.
