Since the higher tier G1X is discounted at $999 right now, I disagree (usually 1299) Seems like the price points are right in line with each other and the competition (LX100, RX100)Both the G5X II and G7X III are priced a little too high given the competition.
I'm in Melbourne and I feel your pain too. The Australia tax and the AUD suck :-(Once everyone outside of USA adds the 15-20% "I don't live in America" tax that all companies impose , then add on the currently bad exchange rate (for AUD, which is about 10% worse than last year, & 20% worse than 5 years ago), these things will cost an absolute fortune!
anyway... I am waiting for the new 'M' model to come out. Hopefully before November when I go overseas, and can claim back the 10% GST.
When is that M5 Mk2 being launched?I'm in Melbourne and I feel your pain too. The Australia tax and the AUD suck :-(
I love my 200D but it has its limitations. Depending on the price and my cashflow, I may spring for the new M5 Mk. II (and EF adapter to use my existing lenses) or maybe pick up a used 80D on ebay.
