What I didn't like about the GX1 was that it was priced at release significantly more than the G3, for the same features and pretty much the same set of external controls, with not enough difference in body size exclusive of the VF assembly for miniaturization to be a factor in the premium cost. There should have been more of a discount because of the lack of a viewfinder.

Both supply and demand factors could be blamed for this:

Supply: Panasonic faced increased costs of putting all the G3 features into a smaller body (even without EVF)

Demand: There's more demand for RF-style than SLR-style bodies
