For those customers who would be sticking with the SxS workflow, there is a minimal price increase. For those who are not necessarily in bed with SxS, you realize a $350 price drop. Essentially allowing you to purchase a full day's worth of recording media with your savings.
For those who had been on the fence about an EX1 this seems to be a VERY good deal. Dealer margin may have shrunk some, but hopefully increased volume will be realized.

I just bought my EX1 from B&H for $6449 and a day after receiving it they drop the price $100! I was a little (1.5%) pissed but I decided to send a message to B&H:
Having bought the Sony PMW-EX1 from you just a couple of days ago, it obviously pains me to see that you have just lowered the price by $100. Since I am a loyal B&H customer who has spent roughly $30,000 with you over the last several years, I'm thinking some show of good will is in order. Like a store credit of $100, for example. I will continue to do business with B&H no matter your answer because I have never had anything but a shining experience with your company. But again, some sort of recognition about the unfair place I have found myself in would be a gleaming gesture that will not be kept a secret, and will most likely repay itself through the business I will inevitably send your way.
We will refund you for the price difference. We appreciate your business.
