Hey

Did just see the announcements from Sony and have to say that the m43 system seems more and more overpriced compared to the NEX system. See the new nex5t a very competetive sensor, and the new entry level model, with a very capable sensor as well.

Compare that to the EP5 and the GX7. I know maybe not a completely fair comparisson but not far off, the prices are though.

And the cheap sigma primes are a super match for the aps-c sensor, not as much the m43.

I am a m43 supporter BUT I do think that it gets less and less competetive compared to nex.

something is 'overpriced' when they can sell available stock planned to be sold

m43rds run various models across a spectrum of prices
its usual to find older product on the cheaper side of pricing
fresher releases on the high side
but cameras like OMD have a certain uniqueness to remain as more of a niche, consequently within tight pricing policy that hasnt seen much of a fall

Sony face the same issue
unless you believe the new 3000, very similar in content to Nex
but sells for a lot less
