If you put the $500 Nikon 85mm lens on a new D7100 take a pic at F1.8 and then crop it down to 16MP and a 4x3 aspect ratio, how would the image compare to the Olympus 75mm lens on an E-M5 at F1.8? I have no idea, but that would be a good comparison.

It is in fact will be very very close.

I am not so sure. Unless you have done a test we can say either way.

I don't see why the images would be significantly different. 16 mpix 4:3 crop of D7100 sensor is very close in size to the sensor in E-M5, and DxOMark noise graph differs by about 0.5 stop such crop would eliminate.

These companies sell items for what the market will pay. If there is less competition and no used market/supply, the prices will be high.

I am not sure what "market will pay" means.

It means they list it at a price and see if it sells. If if does they keep that price. I am sure they do their research too. After a few years, like most lenses, the price drops because of the used market and costs to make the lenses drop.

What do you mean "it sells"? 1 lens a month - does it mean "it sells"? 10?
