Insane...I bought mine when they first came out; guess I paid the price for being an early adopter. I couldn't sell my kit without taking a beating on the price, so it's a good thing I love the damn camera.
IMO Fuji didn't do themselves any favors. Releasing a camera that shouldn't have been released before the needed firmwares, people on internet forums constantly talking about those negatives and scaring people from buying into the system, the issues (for some) with RAW support, and then when everything is improving, they release the X-E1 @ $700 cheaper, cutting into the XP1's sales.
Thankfully there are those that realize how special a camera the XP1 is and are willing to learn it because in the right hands, it's nothing short of outstanding. Not to repeat the hype, but this camera (and the X-E1) is capable of image quality that rivals FF cameras. Lots of detail, and great ISO performance in the 3200-6400 range. If only Fuji hadn't taken so long to address some of the issues the camera suffered from when first released. The XP1 would have been much more popular and held it's value better, imo.
