Sony FS5 has a $750 price drop to under $3.5K

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...2855/KBID/3801

Spotted the news when I was checking up on the HiSpeedCamera website:

Sony FS5 240fps Full HD Camera Gets $750 Price drop! - Hi Speed Cameras

Didn't realise a new FS5 had dropped to well under four grand.
But I had already noticed the prices of a FS5 on eBay had been steadily trending down this year.*

So while the the FS700 had become more and more attractive (around US$1.5K ish is a common price on eBay for a FS700), if the FS5 comes down in price to only be another $1K more (as I'm sure the price drop on a new FS5 will apply pressure to eBay prices!) then it might be a tough ask to buy a FS700 when the FS5 is only a little more. Hmmmm.....*

But the Sony PMW-F3 on eBay for as low as possibly US$750ish itself for a whole camera (the FS5 price drop equals a whole F3!)*remains attractive, especially as I wouldn't need to buy a new recorder at all for a 2nd F3 camera.*(although in the last month or two the* low end floor*price of an F3 seems to have trended back up to $1K, I dunno... just a momentary blip I assume in the overall inevitable decline in prices for everything)

Plus of course let's not forget the new BMPCC4K and the many other mirrorless cameras recently released.*
