Panasonic and (over)price

Panasonic has a history of putting camera's in the market that have remarkable features, but are overpriced. See for instance the L1 and L10. They never sold in great amounts though they have a lot to go for. I fear with the G1 and GH1 it will go the same way. After all, as far as size concerns, they don't have a big advantage compared with Olympus DSLR's. Neither in size, nor in picture quality. And the big extra: video function in HD quality, is for most photographers not an issue. After all: a photocamera is ergonomically not designed for filming. And both activities have there own public. So: in my opinion there might be a place for a camera like the GH1, but not for the price it will probably be introduced for.
Kind regards Roelof

Panasonic L10, Olympus E330, E510
