G1X's high pricing is likely exactly as Canon intended ...
In reply to Michel F, Feb 22, 2012

There is the possibility that making the G1X NOT that attractive price-wise relative to DSLRs is exactly what Canon intended.

Canon and Nikon are the market leaders in DSLR sales and both have less incentive to grow the market of DSLR-alternatives (compared to Panasonic/Olympus/Sony). While Mirrorless higher end camera (ie. m43, NEX, etc.) still have relatively low sales in North America, they are rapidly gaining market share in Asia and Europe. I suspect the G1X and Nikon 1 are the respective companies 'just in case' or 'have something ready' hesitant first steps to address this.
