I wonder if the higher price is due to two factors:

1) The fact that the DSLRs are produced in higher numbers.

m4/3 cameras - and other mirrorless cameras - have a far lower number of parts than DSLRs which should more than cancel out the volume advantage of some DSLRs.
I doubt if the Pentax K30 mentioned by the OP sells in higher numbers than some m4/3 cameras.

2) The smaller & lighter package of M4/3 is a desired thing, and therefore they're applying a fee for that value.
