m43 camera's are still a bit expensive for what you get. Yes, you can find deals on older models, the newer ones are usually too pricey. By the way, I do think the EM-5 is priced very competatively, so that is an exception.

Until Olympus & Panasonic start lowing the cost for their lower end models, consumers will buy DSLRs. For example, today I can buy:

Nikon D5100 (body) $550
Nikon D3200 (w/lens) $700
Canon T3i (body) $580

All prices are from B&H.

Now, compare the above with the new Panasonic G5 at $700 (body only) or $800 with kit lens.

Which is the better value?
