Micro Four Thirds body deflation
11 months ago

I think one major problem with the m4/3 system is the massive deflation of the camera bodies.    I just got notification that the E-P3 kit is $370 at Adorama.  The new E-P5 is $1100.  The GX1 is selling for $200-250 this week.   Those are flagship compact bodies that are only one generation old selling for less than half the price of their replacements.   This doesn't happen with DSLR cameras very often.    For example, the new Canon T5i is $899, the T4i is $749 and the T3i is $549.

It makes one hesitant to buy any newly released cameras for m43, doesn't it?  I mean you know it's not going to be worth peanuts in a couple years.
