Supply and Demand: Sony NEX-7 Selling for Ridiculous Prices on eBay

Sony’s NEX-7 mirrorless camera has been extremely difficult to find due to manufacturing being disrupted by the flooding in Thailand earlier this year. As a result of the shortage, the camera is selling for absurd prices on eBay — people are buying the camera for over $3,700 new. If you managed to snag one of the cameras while they were available, you might want to auction it off now before supply is restored. You’ll be able to buy three of them then for the current price of one!

    People are so dumb.

    You can get a 5D MKII and a hell of a lens for a LOT less than $3700. Hell, pick your body and lens at that price!

  • Guest Who?

    Agreed, but then again, you can buy NEX-7’s and ‘bay them to find really nice equipment (;

    If Sony was smart…

    I nearly did this with the X100 when I got a call from a place in Utah that just got a couple. For a moment I wanted to say “give me two” and auction the second, but it just felt so wrong.
