I have a question for the Red Team.
I am very clear on stages 1-4, but there seems to be a small void of information regarding a seemingly grey area. I will call this a possible Stage 3.5.
If you have purchased a Red One after Oct 30th, 2009, and you plan to trade this Red One body in for $17,500 off of an Epic S35 in August or September, would you get priority in line over someone that did not already own a Red camera in terms of delivery?
On the trade in ...
-I am fully aware that no free accessories would be included.
-I am also aware that it would not be an Epic-X.
-I understand that Stage 1-3 cameras would be delivered with greater priority.
My question is ... as a post 10/30/09 Red One owner, would one then be in the head of the line for the Epic S35s? Would this group of owners represent the proverbial Stage 3.5?
Since many Epic accessories are coming out before the body (Bomb EVF in Jan/Feb, etc), this purchase could make a lot of sense to a lot of people. It would allow more shooters to start learning the unique Red work flow.
Additionally, It could also make sense in terms of generating working capital for Red.
Hope this question makes sense.
Let me know when you can.
