OK $500 dollars is $500 dollars and that is a lot of money. But lens are expensive what are people expecting?

The 14-42mm IIR lens is only an extra $50 with the camera. That is sort of a base for expectations, isn't it?

The 17mm f/1.8 is about the same size, same number of elements, same number of aspheric elements, why does it cost ten times as much?
