K-30 a compelling reason for E-M5 price reduction?

Bigger, but not too big.  Excellent IQ.  Great handling.  Weathersealed.  DPR loved it in their review other than for video.  Price on Amazon:  $650 body only.

Still prefer the E-M5 for its size/weight/lens systems (mFT and FT).  But otherwise the K-30 matches it well feature for feature.  My personal feeling is that the market has once again evolved, and with it, it's time to bring that price down, Olympus.  Maybe not to $650, but perhaps $800-850.
