With 2014 just barely holding on to dear life before it disappears into the history books, we have Episode IV in our Camera Price Charts mini-series, focusing on Serious Fixed Lens cameras, with Prime or Zoom lenses. This covers many but not all cameras with RAW (there are many and more these days, even a few cameraphones support RAW one way or another). In Part #1, we looked at the prices of 35mm Full Frame Cameras. In Episode II, we stopped down to APS-C DSLRs, while in Episode III, we threw away the mirrors for a look at Mirrorless Camera prices. To see the charts at a bigger size, “View Image” in browser.
The prices are a consensus between B&H Photo and Amazon and Adorama as of December 31 in 2014. These are new condition with USA warranty prices, in-stock or (pre)orderable from authorized dealers (iffy and unauthorized dealers selling at Amazon are ignored). For cameras with multiple colors, we use the lowest price (eg black Fuji X100S over silver). A few have non-trivial price differences or availability differences between the benchmark retailers, you can find these cameras mentioned in the Footnotes at the bottom.
