The OM-D is $1100 and the 12-35 is $1300 for a total of $2400.

The Fuji X-E1 with 18-55 is $1400.

Tell me how it's overpriced again?

D7100 is $1169, Nikon 17-55 2.8 $700 (just bought the lens for my S5) a total of $1869, this combo is AMAZING and not to mention damm bloddy blazing fast and accurate.

I am not interested in X-E1, but the XPRO1.  $1100 plus $600 for lens $1700, yeah that's is over priced for the poor AF that comes with it 

I don't think i need to take economics classes for this either

No one has ever said nor contended that the AF on the X Pro-1 approaches that of a DSL-R.  Some users have had no issues photographing their children with the X series while others have.

You're saying that compared to a D7100 and 17-55 that the X Pro-1 and 18-55 is over priced because of poor AF compared to a DSL-R.  In that case some one would have to have their head examined to spend $12,000 for a Leica M and 50mm f1.4 Summilux.  After all, it has no AF at all.  And lord knows that before AF was invented there were no pictures ever taken of anything that moved.
