Re: E-30 and 14-54 II prices at Henry's.

as far as I remember, the E3 also started selling for 1700 euro, which was not competitive. Soon after prices were dropping. Olympus cannot deny the competition. It's not about winning C/N customers over, but about attracting first time DSLR buyers into the 4/3 system. And Oly will not attract many of them with a 1200 euro E30 (same price as the D300 at the moment).

I expect the price to drop to something like 900-950 euro. If not, they will pretty soon find out that the only market segment left where they are a bit competitive is that of the E4xx and E5xx cameras.
