Far too many companies making far too many cameras with too little life before obsolescence with far too many different types of lens mounts chasing too little spare money from people's stagnant or non existent wages.

Something has to break soon as it cannot continue.

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?
