Street Prices for the PMW-F3
 
Dear Friends,

Sony has announced the Street Prices for the PMW-F3

PMW-F3L Street Price is $13,300, List Price is $16,000 (Without lenses)
PMW-F3K Street Price is $18,950, List Price is $23,000 (With three lenses)

I thought "street price" is by definition the price retailers are actually selling at, vs. what the manu MSRP says? In other words, the figure could never come from the manu?

Somebody who is not a sponsor has listed for $13,300 already. That's my definition of street price.

Chris Medico November 23rd, 2010 01:46 PM

Many times what is called street price is actually MAP or minimum advertised price. The manufacturer will set this number and enforce it to all authorized resellers.

Dan Keaton November 23rd, 2010 01:53 PM

Dear Friends,

In the United States, due to a 2008 Supreme Court ruling, manufacturers can actual set Minimum Selling Prices.

Prior to this ruling manufactures could set Minimum Advertised Prices.

For many Sony cameras, there is a "Program Price", which is the minimum sale price for the product.

So, we have List or MSRP, MAP, and Minimum Sale Price.

Many Sony dealers sell at the Minimum Sale Price, so this quickly becomes the "Street Price".

Nate Weaver November 23rd, 2010 02:10 PM

Ok. Fair enough. But the camera is going to be selling for a lot closer to 13K, thankfully!

It's actually the difference between this camera being a contender or not, really. At 16K for me, it's too close to an Epic. At 13K, it's a definite possibility.

Doug Jensen November 23rd, 2010 05:06 PM

I don't know if this has been talked about elsewhere or not, but there will only be 10-12 dealers in the USA who will be authorized resellers for the F3. Just because a dealer currently sells the EX1R/3 doesn't mean they will be carrying the F3. It's not hard to guess who most of those resellers will be.

That is excellent news, if this is true, those numbers would be fantastic. I'll take 2 please.

I saw for the B&H prices (who is a sponsor) for $13,300 so I'm guessing thats the real deal. Very nice price point.

Nate Weaver November 23rd, 2010 07:17 PM

Aha. When B&H first put up a couple days ago, it was at 16.

Apologies to Dan. When I first read his first post, all I saw was the 16K, didn't see he had 13.3 in there. So I was like "street!?"

Dan Keaton November 23rd, 2010 09:08 PM

Dear Nate,

Thank you, I understand now.

Jason Burkhimer November 23rd, 2010 11:47 PM
