The problem with this isn't that the camera body costs $375. The future is important to me if I am going to be spending thousands on some nice lenses. At the very least you would need to drop another grand in a used 14-54 and a 50-200 to use on this $375 body. Buy a flash and you are at $1500+ in a system that could be "As good as it will ever get" with no upgrade path, at least not now. And this is the reason for the low prices. And if speculation is correct, any possible future upgrades will be via expensive "Pro" models if at all. I don't think anyone is saying this is a bad camera or a bad system, just there doesn't appear to be any future in it.
