    I read this thread, wow, very informative. I purchased the DVX200 after evaluating the Canon XF405. I found the images out of the camera to be quite soft. Then, when I purchased the DVX200, wow, what a difference. Razor sharp 4K video. All of my clients are extremely happy with the quality coming out of the DVX200. I really feel it is a great camera for it's price point. I used to own three Canon XF300 HD cameras and wanted to move up to 4K. Yes, I did lose some zoom range (18x) vs (13x), but the loss was minimal and moving up to 4K60P from HD 1080i made a huge difference. All my monitors in my studio are 4K so it's a great match.

    I do share the feelings of most people here - i Hope the camera gets updated at some point!

    I've seen prices on the DVX200 come way down. Abes of Maine has the camera at $2999, over $1000 off the original $4k+ list price. This makes me wonder if an update is coming, but that's the only hint I've seen since the original rumor of a 2018 update on the 43rumors web site.

    Still $4195 at B&H. I don't remember if Abe's of Maine is an authorized reseller or not. When B&H's or Adorama's price drops, that would be a sign that real, actual Panasonic pricing has come down. As of right now it looks like it's still $4195.

    Abe's of Maine is not an authorized reseller and that appears to be a gray market item. Buying gray market means no US warranty and items may be missing from the box.

    Abe’s of Maine is a notorious bait-and-switch operation. I really don’t understand how they’re still in business after years of being called out for that, except that they relocated to New Jersey to reset their BBB rating.

    Someone else (besides what I see here) set me straight on Abe's. I stand corrected - and so far no change at B&H (or Adorama). Curiously, though, Amazon lists it at $3319. I'll stop trying to guess what this might mean.

    It probably means some gray market seller is selling it on Amazon.

    Actually I just looked it up. That $3300 DVX200? Look who the seller is... Abe's Electronics.

    In the "hope springs eternal" department, not much hope for a DVX200b or DVX300 anytime soon. Panasonic's online posting for NAB 2018 makes no mention of a coming surprise, as they did so effectively with the AU-EVA1.

    GH5s technology in a DVX200 update makes a lot of sense to me, but it is a tough business. I guess a reassessment of current options is in store... rats.
