Sony RX100 and Canon 1D X get Stock Status pages (also: new Modular feature and Realignment)
We have a number of updates on the Stock Status pages! We have just launched two new stock status pages to track Sony RX100 pre-orders and Canon 1D X pre-orders. Considering that we had three completed RX100 reviews out of the gate, things look promising for the RX100. On the other hand, things are on the delay-and-wait, wait-and-delay cycle for the 1D X.
We also re-aligned the cameras list at the Stock Status page. A number of cameras that have been steadily in-stock and with unchanging prices have moved from the Frequently-Updated to the Infrequently-Updated. These include the Fuji X-Pro1, X100, Canon G1x, S100, Nikon D7000, Pentax K-01, Sony NEX-7, and A77/A65. These are market-driven decisions. If the market conditions change, the cameras will move to the Frequently Updated list. A good example of that is the Nikon D700.
You Keep These Alive!
We keep forgetting to stress this, but please note that maintaining the various Stock Status and Pre-Orders pages is a time-consuming and ephemeral type of work. Think of it as butler service. If you find them useful/helpful/etc, make sure you make some of your purchases through the Stock Status pages. This sends us a signal that you find this feature useful and want it to continue!
