What happened to micro 4/3 pricing?

Hello from the Canon DSLR forums. I don't venture over here very much.

I was just looking at prices of micro four thirds cameras, and I was shocked to see that you can get a Panny GX1 body for merely $275. That's insane! A lowly Canon S110 costs more than that (granted there is a lens). Meanwhile I see that the GH3 is at $1299. Is it really worth $1,000 more?

What has happened to the pricing of micro four thirds over the years? It seems the high end models still command premium pricing while the mid-level models have dropped in price drastically. I remember the GX1 was priced at $699 for body alone when it came out. Now its just 40% of that initial price. I wish that happened with DSLRs.

What has happened to the market?
