@ Miranda what is the meaning of "s/h"?


Not Miranda - but s/h means second-hand or used.

It seems to me that A-mount prices don't go up, just down. I'm hoping that one day some of the more expensive lenses will drop into my budget!

Funnily enough I read that and immediately got me thinking about this thread too

I imagine new sales will fluctuate based on discounts etc. The used market on the other hand doesn't enjoy the same kind of seasonal offers. So I am not sure how well that graph would extrapolate for used markets.

I can think of one case where the market trends of new equipment could have a reflection on the used equipment markets: when some new fancy camera or lens is released, then soon after that many people might want to update their older equipment to this newest thing and thus there would be a surge in availability of second hand previous generation(s).
