They're selling it at $400. Kinda pricey if you ask me.

I don't see anywhere that says it will be priced that high. "Samsung says it expects the camera to start shipping in the late April/May time frame and will cost less than the original, which sold for $350, £350 and AU$500 when it launched last year."
You can preorder on Samsungs German website for $249 Euro, with an exchange rate of 1 = 1.09 US, thats no where near $400.

It was at $400 on Amazon when I wrote the post. It has since then gone down to $300 and today it's at $255.
