It is combination, not in between

It is not " in-between a DSLR and a superzoom", it "combines a DSLR and a superzoom". It can use interchangeable lens as a DSLR (superzoom cannot do it), while it can also take HD video as a superzoom (most DSLR cannot take video).

Your 450D cannot take HD video, that is why it is cheaper (as it incapable to do something that GH1 can do).

If you don't need HD video, then buy a G1. Nobody force you to ignore G1.

Both qualitywise and sizewise it's a camera in-between a DSLR and a
superzoom. So it should be priced accordingly. A pricetag about half
of what you are saying would be reasonable. And you can ad € 150,
because it's new technology and than we are talking about a
reasonable affordable camera.

I bought the 450D Canon-kit a few months ago for € 1000,00. No way
this GH1 should me more expensive, unless the picture output is way,
way, way better then the G1, because that was basically just not
impressive for the money. It's a good cam, and amazingly smart
design, but the pricetag is wasy, way off.
