Pre-orders are now LIVE for Sony RX10 IV

The iPhone X ruined my joke for the Sony RX10 IV price, because it no longer costs twice as much as the iPhone πŸ™‚ Regardless, bad jokes are not included with the pre-orders πŸ™‚ Sony went the flagship smartphone route with separating the announcements from the pre-orders. So today is the day…

… pre-orders are now accepted for $1700 for the new Sony RX 10 IV 1-inch superzoom with RAW and much and more at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself.

The Canon G9 X compact with RAW (previous generation model – see Fixed Lens Camera Price Chart for a refresher on Canon’s G models) goes for $400 in new condition at authorized dealers, while the G9 X II goes for $450.

… to B&H Photo we go where they bundle the black Canon G9 X (first generation) with the PIXMA PRO 100 printer and its trusty sidekick (50pk 13×19″ photo paper). You pay $749 at checkout, receive the order, make sure all is well, file the mail-in rebates following instructions and deadlines, and a few weeks later, you receive a $350 prepaid American Express gift card by mail, thus making it a very long sentence, and more importantly, a $400 after $350 MIR promotion.

On the other hand, if you prefer the G9 X II with the PIXMA PRO 100 and paper promotion, you end up paying around $30 more [than the price of the G9X II alone] after rebate. In either black or brown, the G9 X II bundle is $479 after a $350 prepaid AMEX GC rebate.

This round of PIXMA mail-in rebates expires 9/30/17. The prices of the cameras themselves and the bundle can change independently of the mail-in rebate amount which is fixed for the duration of this promotion.
