Sony A9 price drop expectations

3 months 1 week ago #662083 by A-Perez
If the Sony A9 drops in price due to the release of the Sony a9ii, when should we expect this to happen. lf so, would it be more reasonable to expect a $500 drop, or $1,000 drop?

I'd guess during next couple months.  We have Black Friday next month to think about.

+1 I was thinking the same thing.  Holidays are right around the corner, so we could see some price cuts then.

Still out of my price range, I'll be happy with a7R IV

Are Black Friday discounts on cameras usually temporary or do they stick forever?

a9 is nice, but way to much $$ IMHO.  I would rather go with the a7r IV or wait for the a7s III

Black Friday this year should be interesting to see what happens with prices not only on this camera but also some up and Nikons stuff.

I think you all are getting to high of expectations set here.  I don't see these cameras being discounted much for years to come.  Putting aside ergonomics, Sony is really doing a good job on these.

What I am hoping for is with the new a9 is out, that the used market on the original a9 will become more affordable.
