    How Fast Do Sony Camera Prices Drop After Release?

    Sony cameras tend to depreciate faster than most cameras.

    Most cameras drop in price by 2% in the first 6 months after release. On average Sony cameras drop in price by 5% in the first 6 months after release. That means that on a typical Sony digital camera costing $736 you could save on average $40 by waiting 6 months before buying.
