you can pick up a canon 6d FF for just o £1100 in the uk , and FF it seems is only going to get cheaper  , olympus ep5 seems very expensive

Is it just the body? In Hong Kong, 6D is selling at around £1,000 and with 24-105 kit set, at £1,500. IMHO despite oly is always over priced (IMO Made In China Product should always cheaper than MIJ), its listed price (a small discount is always expected on high street) is just £750 and as you know, kit set with VF4 is just £1,000.

For a few month old camera 6D vs a is going to be released ep5, cost wise ep5 is not expensive. The price difference also reflect the current gap between the 2 different format of camera.
