Then there are the lenses

In the UK the lenses are are very expensive

Prices today from Warehouse Express include:

7-14 £915
14-140 £729
45 f2.8 £598

The 7-14 seems especially expensive, more than the equivalent 12-24 and 10-24 Nikon's which cost £805 and £639 respectively.

The 45 macro also seems expensive at £599 even though it wears a Leica badge. Nikon's newest 60 micro is £398.

To turn a interchangeable lens camera into a system you want to be able to afford a range of lenses and for the time being m4/3 looks pretty pricey for a system especially when you factor in the cheaper but often excellent 3rd party lenses available for Nikon and Canon
