Too high is a relative term.  I would expect the first MFT rangefinder with built-in EVF, IBIS, and new sensor to command a high price.

Higher than NEX-6 - then it is dead in the water.

Really? And why is that?

The EP5 is way more expensive than any non VF NEX camera. Hell, I think even the EPL-5 is and that doesn't even have the excuse of being brand new or having 5-axis IBIS. AFAIK neither of those cameras would be considered "dead in the water" so why would a panasonic camera be if it's priced above what some would see as the equivalent NEX?
