300 cycles and 16M reads (Illumina spec) for a MiSeq v2 kit is $1000. So, you're getting more MiniSeq reads but for a price increase that ends up keeping the cost per base about... yeah, the same. (~2E-5 cents per base if my napkin math is right)

And what JBKri said about error rates-- comparing to one of my last MiSeq runs, the error rates are about double. Is that typical for the 2-dye chemistry?
