Nice and romantic to think of photography equipment as a pure artistic tool - but when talking about £2,000 - £3,000 of equipment I think investment and financial sense is a factor for some people

I am sorry, but regardless of what it costs, todays digital cameras are consumable products.  They become obsolete very very quickly (advances in technology) and as a result any value they have diminishes quickly.

Lenses, on the other hand, can be considered (somewhat) as an investment.  Good optics will always be good optics.

Both Fuji and Panasonic/Olympus make very good lenses.  But their camera bodies are just consumer electronics and have only fleeting value.
