$1k for such limited camera was too much. Not interested in DP1 but DP3 sounds nice. I will wait for the right price on that one too

If there is one consistent complaint on this forum and almost every other at dpreview, it is that the price is too high. When it goes lower, it is still too high. Free is just about right.

No wonder the entire industry is close to tanking.

I dont think you make the poster justice here.

$1K is quite a high priced compact camera.

Now, The DPM cameras are special cameras and the $1K price might be motivated. But, it is quite natural to question such a price.

If it had been $500 or even $400, I dont think many would have objected to the price.

Its like the $2K for the SD1. Its a bit hefty for such a camera. I dont think its unreasonable, considering what it contains. But ... I would not be surprised if the price was questioned.
