Someone told me the sensor now costs less than 2.000 US$. Is that correct?

That someone must have a very special discount on buying sensors then....

The price of a new Credo 80 is about 8000 USD higher than that of an Aptus-II 12, so a 15K trade-in price is fairly reasonable I believe.

The reasoning may be a little circular here.  Faced with significantly more than 15K to upgrade my Leaf 12 to a Credo 80, which is still crippled compared to the IQ180, it made more sense for me to upgrade to the phase product.  For a little more than half of what the Credo upgrade would have cost, I was able to upgrade my Aptus 12 to a used IQ 180 with 2300 clicks and a full warranty.  The final straw for me was that the cost for upgrading from the Aptus 10 was the same as the Aptus 12.  So buy a flagship product and get screwed.  Could not be happier with the IQ 180.

Henrik, I would consider this before shelling out for the Credo, as the IQ still offers more.

That was an interesting solution. I think Leaf are pushing their best costumers away with this.
With the Credo you can't even use the Leaf capture.
Did you make this deal privately or through a dealer?

Please note that Credo and IQ trade-in policies are similar when you buy new

The Credo is not even shipping yet so obviously there's no option to buy a used one like Jag did with the IQ...

Normally you should consider buying through/ from the local dealer as they will take care of any shipment costs in case of a warranty/ non-warranty repair

Henrik,

it was through a dealer, and I got the warranty as well.  The back looks brand new.  With the recent "sale" activity of MFDB's (you may have read all the hoopla as it relates to the D800), I think you should be able to find an IQ 180 quite easily at a dealer.  In the end, for me, the IQ offered the best feature set, and paying significantly less than for the Credo upgrade was a huge bonus and a no-brainer.

Thank you!
I can not see any reason to buy a new Credo with those trade-in prices.
I can buy a IQ180 used for just 5-8.000 more.

Or maybe a D800e will do the job...
..and we can leave the sinking ship in time..
