Doesn't matter if you can't make a profit on them. The biggest thing holding back mirrorless is price. If it was 200-300 dollars, I would buy one...

These were taken with my $299 DMC-G3 with kit lens:

Not discontinued or used. You cannot find the EP2 or this camera for 299 new with lens.

Amazon has the E-P2 body for sale for $210. Ebay is full of sales of the kit lens for around $80. If you can't find a lens for a micro four thirds camera for less than $100 then you're not looking very hard.

I bought the G3 with lens for less than $300. Do you need to see the receipt? I made the point that it's easy to find a micro four thirds camera for the price you range you quoted. I made that point easily.

Oh, so it has to be brand new, the very latest camera, it has to be as small as a compact yet perform as well as a DSLR, it has to include a lens, oh and the manufacturer has to be making a profit on it while still keeping the price under $300. Any other restrictions you want to tack on before you'll buy? Or do you want to keep moving the goalposts?

Sure B&H shows them for that price but you cant get one, it is discontinued. Even if you could, manufacturer is not making money off of it. It is trying to unload the old garbage so the new stuff will sell.

So you think the G3 and the E-P2 are garbage, beneath your photographic skills?
