S100fs via basic DSLR...price, budget, features, etc...

So, eventually this Fuji new model, S100fs has arrived in Israel. The initial price is now 2918 NIS, which is 858 USD. This is VERY expensive for such a non-DSLR adavanced camera...I have gathered some information about prices of basic DSLR systems, like Nikon D40x, Nikon D60 or Canon EOS 400D with a kit lenses....So, the Canon is 3340 NIS, which is 985 USD (with a basic kit lens) and Nikon D40x is about 3100 NIS, which is 910 USD....

As you see, the prices are very similar to the new Fuji...but why??? I know that the Fuji is very good camera, with IS and super zoom and many proffesional features, but I don't think it's worth such a price...
