So sad. The MX1 might be dead on arrival. If it drops below $300, I'd be sorely tempted.

This type of camera doesn't hold its price long, and I do think it was priced slightly high.  LX7, EX2, etc all dropped pretty quickly.  It didn't help that all the makers were all caught with their pants down by the RX100, which isn't priced that much higher.  I know Samsung dropped the EX2 price $50 or $100 before it even released as it was about the same time as RX100.
