First pricelisting in the Netherlands â‚¬6.799 (current 26/10 dollar rate: $9,461)
Between Canon 7D and Canon 1-D X there is a price gap of at least 3 camera's. Bring them on
In US, it is more like 4.5 cameras... (based on current prices /rebates)
Seems there's an assumption that the increase is linear, when it's not. Actually, it's more like 2 cameras. Plotting the prices of current cameras from the T3/1100D through the 5DII, the best curve fit is a 2nd order polynomial (R2 = 0.99344). Extrapolating that curve upwards, the next increment is $3600, then $5000, then the $6800 1D X. Replotting the data including the $6800 price of the 1D X, fitting a 4th order polynomial curve, and interpolating that curve by integer units also yields two intervening models, but with approximate prices of $4000 and $5300.
Made me smile Thanks John.
The next time Canon deviates from a 2nd order polynomial, i'll create a new thread and ping ya!
