Re: What is affordable about that?

I think this price is justified because they are first to market with this all-in-one design.
This is not a photocamera, it is much more than that.

If computers become much more powerfull (HD editing), software easier and price drops most people will prefer such a device.
No-one will accept a camera that can only take stills (consumers I mean).

That is why I would say the opposite ... the other camera's are overpriced because they lack important must-have (future oriented) features.

If people document events they will shoot 1080p HD (or better) video, pick some stills out of the (4MP video later on) video clips and make still photos (digital photo frame etc.) from those.
Why could canon ask so much for the first consumer oriented DSLR ?
It offered things the competition couldn't do (for that price) back then.

Same with Panasonic now. Those who think they need this GH1 don't mind the cost at all. Those less interested in video could as well buy whatever other DSLR or of course the G1.
