There is no perfect camera for everyone or we'd only have one forum! Get what you like and don't worry about what other people think.

My advice: Borrow or rent the gear you're thinking of purchasing. Use it as long as you can. Make sure it's what you want. Switching is one thing. Switching back and forth gets insanely expensive!

To address your question of whether or not we feel cheated by lens prices, I do not... At all... In fact, I feel rewarded if anything. 24-70 and 70-200 (both of the f/2.8 variety) are my main Canon lenses. The Panasonic counterparts are about half the price. And in the case of the longer of the two, half the size and 1/4 of the weight. I use mine for travel, so that's a concern for me.

This often quoted comparison tells everything one reasonably thinking person needs. Add to the size and weight advantages of the E-M5 its inconspicuous appearance, you have the clear winner. Street and travel photography have new (smaller) dimensions with a set like E-M5 plus 7-14mm, 12-35mm, and 35-100mm.
