    Indeed. That's the agenda of who only has to lose with a price reduction. Here is a very interesting post on topic:

I am certain that if tomorrow Red announced they have found a cure for cancer, a certain 'class' of individual here would whine how Red developed the cure just to destroy the livelihood of all the existing cancer treatment providers.

    The amazing thing is, the people most passionately campaigning against any price reduction are the ones who would not even be in their precious rental business if it was not for Red and its products in the first place! Red made them.

    Their attitude is doubly appalling: "I got mine, but now close the doors. I don't want anyone else to compete and prosper."

    This is the same close-minded attitude that caught Sony, Alexa et al napping and made Red-volution possible. And some people want Red to emulate this behavior?

    Unreal.

    Whatever is going on, as long as I can put some money down before the end of the year for tax reasons, I'm happy.

    It is a complicated problem, but a good problem to have.
    Not to be too much of a nag. Haha, when has that not been the case. ;) But I would add: *affordable* pathway to the Dragon.

    I'm sure with unlimited money it wouldn't be a complicated problem at all but as is it's got to cost less than a new camera. :D

    A lot of users here are quite aggressive in their notion that we all should be happy about lower prices. But for good reasons a lot of us are worried, and I must say I regret having bought the Epic, as the project it was planned for has been delayed. It's not always you plan for investing in an expensive paper-weight... And it's not often I do that, i.e. the Scarlet payed for itself within 4 weeks.

    It's a tool. Just like your Epic. The rest is just zeros.

    It's ok, and perfectly natural, to be upset and/or disappointed. Just don't throw it back at RED and suggest they are "screwing" their customers. We all live with decisions we made in the past in an uncertain world. The best thing RED can do for its customers is stay competitive and stay in business. If they become "over-priced" in a highly competitive market, we all lose.

    For those who want to continue complaining about the price drop, I'll refer you to the title of this thread.

    EVERYTHING CHANGES.

    RED as a company is notorious for this, and this is why we continue to have the toys we have. If everyone wanted to buy into a camera system that is dishonest and is not transparent about costs... ARRI, Sony & Canon are waiting for you. Until then, god bless RED.

    I hope you guys don't start make lighting anytime soon. :-) Seeing that these cameras are basically computers... I've made the wise decision to invest in grip and lighting.
