Does anyone think the M4/3 offerings are a bit overpriced?

Wow what a price!

Now I know why the Japanese versions only have Japanese menus- to keep them from being exported everywhere around the globe!

Considering the 20mm lens cost $400 alone in the USA. Of course the price is probably even higher.

I would think that a GF1 with 20/1.7 at $700 price would be very attractive in the US or Europe.

Profits are made off the rest of the world, in Japan this pricing (now 64,000yen) for market share is all about pride.
