Prices of $15K and $17K for the Leaf Aptus-II 7 and the P30+ were already very unrealistic even before the D800.
It is hard to imagine that the prices for the 30MP backs would not go down...
I think that they won't, or marginally but not enough to stop the bleeding.
They don't target any more the active professional who need to look in his bank account. They know that this battle is lost already against giants of this industry with much more
technological power and infrastructures.
They target the retiree pro, the wealphy amateur, the museums and specialized institutions, gallery artists but their really pro client isn't where the money is and it will be less and less truth.
I understand their position, at the same time, I think they really need new creative staff. Look at Red, this isn't a big company, but they are on their way to dominate a huge market.
MF have been really slow to react to the evolution, they haven't been visionary but conservative. This world changes at the speed of light and MF changes at the speed of a turtle. Soon or later, this will cost something somewhere.
I don't think honestly that if there is not a serious reaction soon and a complete rebuilt of their mentalities, they will disappear or forced to be even more specialized and therefore more expensive.
