I don't think the average purchaser of cameras in that price range knows about, or gives a rip, about DR.   I think it is because m4:3 cameras are funny looking. And to top it off they are afraid they won't impress their friends who want to see you lugging around HUGE WHITE lenses for them to be properly impressed.

In Japan, "Hello Kitty" reigns supreme, in the US, it's big white lenses.  Its all good.

Just a heads up, your friends and neighbors have no idea what the difference between a white lens or black lens is.  They just think anyone with a big lens is a nerd.
