Hmmm . . .

Right now the G6 + 14-42 kit lens is $650

Nikon 3300 + 18-55 kits lens is $568

Nikon 5300 + 18-55 kits lens is $846

To me the G6 slots in between the 3300 and 5300 and the price does too. I think the Panasonic G6 is very competitive with the 3300/5300 feature wise (unless you count MP) and should be very attractive to a well informed consumer. Alas there are not that many well informed consumers out there I think due to the lack of advertising/marketing by the m43 manufacturers.

I think Olympus in particular needs a G6 competitor (swing out screen and built-in EVF) to play in this market.

The G6 sensor is just not competitive with the Nikons. If it had the Sony sensor I would agree 100%

But the people buying the D5300 or the G6 really don't know about such things.  Plus the sensor in the G6 is likely way more than good enough.
