Camera Price Charts November 2017 Episode IV: RAWsumers Keep Going!

The popularity and advancement of smartphones, the parade of mirrorless options, and $1000-ish full frame DSLRs have not, as some of the doomsayers foretold, killed the serious fixed lens camera. Not only that, but we had three new models since our previous update in July 2017. One of the three was even a new segment for RAWsumers, the “serious elementproof action cam” in the Sony RX0.

RAWSUMERS KEEP ON CLICKING

The storied Canon G-series has now “graduated” to an APS-C sensor with the brand new G1X III, and its price too adjust upwards to factor the larger sensor size.

Camera Price Charts November 2017 Episode III: Mirrorless Everywhere

This is the biggest of the Price Charts, with the most cameras and most charts too! It’s mirrorless time! They are after all “winning” 2017 by a score of 12-8 vs DSLRs. A field goal can no longer tie the game 😉 This is episode #3 in the November 2017 series.

GOODBYE NIKON 1 SYSTEM from the PRICE CHARTS
With this edition, we have a change in coverage. Even though Nikon’s 1-System cameras still remain at enough of the tracked retailers, I decided to remove them from this and future Mirrorless price charts because:

+ it’s a dead system
+ there is no movement in the prices
+ given their situation, they are more noise than signal

Camera Price Charts November 2017 Episode I: 35mm Full Frame Steady As She Goes

The time is right to start a new “Price Charts” series, this is the November 2017 edition, taking a snapshot of camera US market prices. We start with the 35mm full frame digital cameras of all kinds. Because Medium and Large Format is a small niche (all things considered), we are not tracking their prices here…

We have one exception with this edition, I am not including the Leicas in this chart, they dominate and skew the flow of the charts with nine entries clustered between $4K and $8K. Now I’m never gonna be invited to a Leica Club party 🙂 If anyone is interested in seeing the Leicas, please leave a comment and I’ll create a separate chart for them 🙂
