I voted yes but I'm still undecided. I don't own an atomic yet but if I was going to get one why not start with the FROGMAN!! I hear everyone yelling about the price but it seems OK to shell out $500+ USD for the Green Frog without batting an eye why worry about a few more bucks for atomic?? I'm sure once no one bites right off the price will drop unless there is limited supply.

I presume you mean the atomic one that just listed at $725. At that price, the answer is no.
No that's the listed price. A couple of friends in Japan say the shops there are taking preorders for about 300 pounds (less than $500).

I think I'll wait for some time. Usually the first model coming out is not the best looking one.


The price info came from yodobashi today so I think it's quite reliable.

That's more reasonable. It is a good module, particularly if you actually dive.

I'm a bit biased here, tho, as it's more than price sensitivity for me. While I'm a huge G fan, I really have never gotten into the Frogs. As such, this is a very easy decision for me, even at $500.

I'm pretty sure I'll get around to adding a Frogman to the collection one day, but it likely will not be the most expensive option.

I really like it, and would love to have one, but that is just to steep of a price. You could pick up a new marathon T or JSAR on Bracelet for that price. I like to keep my G's under the 400 mark.|>

I voted no but if it goes for <$500 and comes out in some colors that are more appealing to me at some point I might go for it.

Even it's discounted to half the price, I'd pull the trigger on a GW5000 first.

Not for now. If they make a stealth one and if the price comes down, I'll start to be interested. But not yet.... I wouldn't pay extra just for atominc, since I can't catch a signal where I am in amongst tall buildings.
