- It is NOT a modular camera -

It has a native MFT mount and uses a special adapter for the FT lenses -

It will be more expensive than the current Olympus E-M5

What I can make out of that is It is a micro camera which in all likelihood will cost in the neighborhood of $1400-$1500. This new focussing adapter is where the 4/3 lenses come in, my estimated cost $500-$600. Hey it has taken them since 2009 to develop it, won't be cheap. And won't work on the older cameras. So your going to have to buy this one Next you can add the optional accesorie grip for handling large lenses. $350 And worst of all now that your a MFT owner your going to have to join that forum to talk about your new camera. Heck throw in the equivalence brigade for good measure. This just might be the most expensive Oly ever made. I would have preferred a E7.

I think your estimates are in the ballpark. Total--about $2,500.

At least we got our lens hoods fre and some bags.

They are not some bags. They are Oly bags .:-)
