You can currently pick up a Nikon D600 Digital Camera with a 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR Lens and other accessories for $1996.  If you take the normal sale price of the lens ($597) and accessories ($174) away, you could say that the underlying price of the camera is $1225.

Getting very close to your $1,000 mark.



not sure where you are seeing that deal, but on b&h the combo kit does have a healthy $700 discount - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/896618-REG/Nikon_13187_D600_Digital_SLR_Camera.html - at $2499

I highly doubt the sub $2000 deal was from an authorized dealer.

$1996 body only (bundled with other goodies, similar to the current deal on the 6d.

Owns 5Dmkiii, 6D, 16-35mm, 24mm 1.4, 70-200mm 2.8, 50mm 1.4, 85 mm 1.8, 100mm 2.8 macro, 1-600RT, 2 430 EX's, 1 video light

BTW, don't buy it.  Its obviously a piece of junk if Nikon has to drop the price so dramatically just after launch.

wasn't planning on it, just kind of shocked that they are offering it at this price...maybe nikon is hurting more than we may think?

The reasons why the 6D is at $2000 are: 1. it need to recap ..... 2. It needs to recap the AF.....  3. It is intended to be a 5D II replacement....3. Canon wants higher profit.
Canon should be able to build a $1000.  Whether it will be sold at $1000, that is another story.

Not true. 

The reason the 6D is priced as it is, is because Canon's market research indicates that the market (you and me, the buying public) will support the 6D's feature set at that given price.  Which also happens to be the reason _anything_ is the price it is.  If the market won't support the price, you either have no more product soon, or you lower the price and hope your costs are well contained (and they should be based on the scale at which Canon can produce cameras).

wild guesses!

it is costly to produce a 24x36mm sensor for Canon and the internal charge is high.
Canon has locked them self into a corner with their internal costs of a  24x36mm sensors  who need to go outside the Canon  Inc  to be assembled together. Production of 24x36mm sensors is in the context small and costly

Mik, when you have 30 years experience in manufacturing and working with market research, come have a thoughtful discussion with me.  Until then, it might be better to learn instead of exclaim.

Never?  In a decade, a new FF will go for less than $300.

Never

Chip costs for the sensor won't allow for pricing to be that low and everyone making a markup.  Compromises made to the 6D at the $2k price point seem to piss everyone off, so to think of a $1k price, it wouldn't even be a p&s type.  Refurb on sale gets a 5d2 down to 1,400-1,500 range, but that's about as low at it will go.

Another recent example is that B&H Photo is selling the Canon Rebel T4i w/18-55 IS kit for $649 . Minus the lens ($100 already highly discounted as a kit lens. Stand alone price is  $199), that make the T4i body worth $549. Add $200 for the FF sensor,  another $250 for larger body, mirror, shutter etc. That will make it $999 for a cheap FF body. Granted it will not be full of features. But it is doable.
