Perhaps it's not fair to compare the top of the line against an entry level model.


No, it's not.

But my point is that, for a consumer who wants an interchangeable lens camera with a viewfinder and the latest technology, the lowest-price M43 option is the G6 at $750 -- compared to the Sony A58 with 18-55 and 75-300 lenses for $596.  Not to mention the plethora of inexpensive, high-quality lenses.

Don't get me wrong: I'm all-in on M43. I just think M43 prices may be hurting its market acceptance.
