Factors in lens cost..

Anyone else feel a little cheated on the MFT lens prices?

I think there are a couple of issues here...

1.Your paying for size with MTF, compaired to most SLR lenses MTF obviously have more effort put into size saving and this likely adds to cost.

2.Your often looking at products of a different level, MTF generally only tends to have 1-2 options for most lens types and sometimes this maybe high end in terms of performance and build. DSLR's on the other hand normally have the option of high medium and low end lenses of each type. For example your stuck with the Panny 12-35mm f2.8, the SLR version would be the Nikon 17-55mm 2.8 but theres also the much lower cost Tamron 17-50mm 2.8.

Personally my opinion is that you always tend to get a better deal selling off lenses rather than bodies, maybe keep the G1X and the 14mm pancake, sell off anything else you have and buy a DSLR.

My opinion is that today running two systems is not the handicap it was in the past as digital was devolping. Even MTF's has really matured as a system and your not likely to see a radical improvement in body performance so less likely to want to upgrade either body.
