Reported on fourthirdsphoto forum from someone at PMA who talked to
the reps.

The price isn't yet determined, but:

"All I got out of them is that it will be on shelves before Summer
and under $1499."

Thus the claims of over $2,000 etc, as reported in germany aren't
applicable to the US.

Reading between the lines here, I see it as about $1200-$1400, which
seems totally reasonable-- representing a camera price of $700 and a
lense price of $500-$700.

A steal for this fancy new lens design.

Also, this is MSRP, who knows what street price will fall to.

Maybe affordable to many (despite the economy), but still very steeply priced. For those not caring about video, there will be much "more affordable" alternatives, some of which outperforming the GH1 and lens (eg Nikon 90, Oly 620, Canon 450 etc).
