I don't think the average purchaser of cameras in that price range knows about, or gives a rip, about DR.   I think it is because m4:3 cameras are funny looking. And to top it off they are afraid they won't impress their friends who want to see you lugging around HUGE WHITE lenses for them to be properly impressed.

I have a Panasonic GX-1 with a Pan/Leica 25mm lens.  My friends are impressed.  They think it's a Leica M.  

For me the m4/3 is a great camera to carry around when I don't want to be lugging around my DSLR.  My DSLR definitely takes better pictures.

I think m4/3s cameras are (were?) a fad.  Do you remember the cartridge P&S film camera?  How about the old disk film camera that Kodak made?  All gone . . . .
