Taking account of the fact that 900 is the list price of a newly

Fine, but what about the Sigma? $300 vs. $900 is a huge difference.

You can ask the same question abouit Sigma vs Nikon or Sigma vs Canon. Or you could ask why the Leica 14-150 mm is more expensive still. Some combination of build quality, optical properties and brand prestige.

If you wait long enough and the m4/3 format is successful enough, perhaps Sigma (or Tamron) will come out with a lens for the G series.
