Smaller should be cheaper?
In reply to marike6, May 2, 2013

Sorry about rubbing this in, but...

Saying something should be cheaper just because it is smaller is like saying a Swiss watch should be cheaper than a mass produced wall clock because it's so much smaller, w/o considering the cost of machining and assembly of those smaller parts.  No, I'm not saying m43 lenses are the equivalent of Swiss watches (Maybe Leica is closer) just that you can't make generalizations on size alone.   Oh, and APS glass is probably cheaper than FF because of higher volume, not smaller size.
