    It seems as though there have been intermittent sales from Black Friday on, but that most prices have held steady. My interest is in used sales on this forum and other places after the holidays.

    I assume that prices -- or sales -- depress, since people have spent a lot of money, and that it takes a couple of months for them to recover. Or, do new cameras lead people to look for lenses and other peripheral camera equipment, and new lenses lead to wanting different camera bodies, used or new? And do retailers dump excess stock, or have they depleted stock?
