One wonders about profit per camera.

Once I was told that a P&S costs to the MFTR 50 $ and a dSLR 100 $. No evidence was provided, but it makes sense that higher tier cameras provide more margin. EVIL cameras could be even more profitable.

I think about the E-PL1.
No evf, no mirror, no af assist lamp.
Plastic body
Old inexpensive sensor, small cheap LCD (non-touch screen).

Even P&S cameras have higher density/newer sensors (though much smaller)and larger, more expensive touch screen LCDs.

My bet is many P&S cameras cost much more to make today.

btw, the E-PL1 still takes great pics.
