Seems like it would cost the same

I don't see why the cost would be any different.

The chip manufacturing cost is probably similar.

I think the LCD's are the same.

The bodies are pretty much the same, only the lens differing between models - and if the DP-2M is an indication, the lenses remained totally identical between old to new versions so you don't even have to recoup any R&D there.  With the current DPM cameras there are slight differences in internal circuitry (the DP3M can track faces which the other two cannot) so you reduce production costs.

My guess is, $800 US (street).
