The mediums usually go for the same price.  The equipment costs the same and it's kind of a specialty market.  People who want mediums want them and it's worth the same price to have the bees on the frames you want rather than ones you don't want.

I think MB is exactly right on this...I got interested in bees in late 2012, did my research, and decided to go all medium 8 frame equipment.  Built all my equipment and started hunting for bees...It was at that time that I realized that medium Nucs were hard to find, at least in my area.  At the end of MUCH MUCH research, I found two options here in Louisiana, one was about a 4 hour drive from me, and the other about an hour....each way.  

Before I found the closer option, I was seriously considering and working on options to get the Nucs that were 4 hours away...I had no interest in messing with trying to transfer deeps to my mediums.  I was thrilled to find Medium Nucs within an hours drive and didn't think twice about paying the same price as a deep Nuc.
