I don't see why the e-pm1 is more epensive to manufacture. It has the same sensor and a pretty cheap LCD screen like you'd find on a $100 camera.

Say what? Please point me to a $100 camera with the same LCD and 4/3 sensor as the E-PM1.

In any case, the price of the camera has pretty much nothing to do with how expensive it is to manufacture, it has to do with what people are willing to pay.

The LCD on the e-pm1 isn't as good as the one on my Canon S90, but doing some research I see that cheap P&S cameras generally have lower resolution screens.

However, the Sony DSC-WX70 which sells for $229 has a much higher resolution LCD than on the e-pm1.

I wasn't talking about the sensor, but the sensor is less expensive to manufacture than an APS-C sensor.
