(ENDED) Projection: Sony NEX-5R w/18-55 will drop to $650 by Black Friday

Black Friday 2012 is over...

Cue the Election Night music alert. We are ready to make a projection! Based on the Black Friday ads from Best Buy and Microcenter, both authorized Sony dealers, we can now project that the price of the Sony NEX-5R with the 18-55mm kits will drop to $650 by Black Friday!

The current price (as of the time of writing of this blog post) of the NEX-5R with 18-55mm kit is $750 at authorized Sony retailers like Amazon and Adorama (page down to see it) and B&H Photo.

So unless you are in a hurry to receive it yesterday, just wait. The price should drop to $650 on or by Black Friday at various authorized Sony retailers.

UPDATE: If you are trying to decide between the NEX-5R (latest model) and the NEX-5N (previous model), Dave pointed out in the comments that the NEX-5N is worth the consideration. The NEX-5N w/18-55 goes for $500 as brand new at Sony Style or if you don't want/need the 18-55 kit lens, for $340 you can get the refurbished NEX-5N body only from Sony Style.
