Re: Key reason M43 isn't gaining traction against DSLRs: Price

I seriously looked at changing to M43 from my Nikon D7000, but price did it for me.  The camera I like most is the GH3 as it suits my hand size, dexterity, and shooting style, but it is currently £949 body only on amazon UK compared to my D7000 which now sells for £599 body only.  Add to that the price of glass and the fact that there is a lot around used (I have an 18-105, 70-300, 50 1.8 together with a Sigma Makro and Wide angle all bought used) and less available for M43 used and the price swings against it for me.
