I think this cam is very realistic but if made by Olympus I think you'd be looking at $1800 at least. Keep in mind that the volume sales will be very low compared to Canikon or even the OMD.

Cheers, Snowbird_UT

Which features in the list are really high cost items to manufacture? Most of the items are ergonomics/layout and design items. We know a large OVF costs money to design and make. What else? A couple of good mode dials don't cost hundreds of dollars to make.

As far as price goes, I think Olympus has to be aware of the competition. The K5ii and D7100 are feature laden semi-pro bodies competing against the E-5. They are both $1000. The D600 is $1900. Never have full frame cameras been so cheap. I think $1800+ would be foolish pricing (almost Sigma-like fantasy pricing).

Best,

Seth

What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?
