Welllll, had there been an E-7 it would surely have been $1700+, so $1400 isn't a bad fallback.

E-M1 + HLD-7 + MMF-3 + new SD cards + new spare batteries = ?

An E-7, which could have been nothing more but a new sensor inside the E-5 body, couldn't have made a loss. Maybe not so much of a profit, but definitely not a loss.

Not so much... How would you expect such a camera to compete with other systems out there, which are loaded with modern technology (WiFi, Focus peaking, 24MP sensors, etc)

Who, other than a few diehard fans, would have bought such a camera? The answer is not a lot of people. Olympus is a business, not a charity and they need to make a profit. I think EM1 is a best offer to both camps so far. Maybe in the future they will come up with a scaled down version to meet a less demanding crowd (my hope)
