5. If history repeats itself, those who are patient will may very well be able to buy the GX7 for less than $500 within a year. It took less time than that before the G5 was on sale for half price.

Right, and the GX8 for $500 a year after that, and GX9 for $500 a year after that, etc... This is how all new cameras/technology works. If you don't want to see diminishing returns on your purchases then either buy second hand, buy after much of the depreciation has taken place, or don't sell your camera ever.

The E-M5 is more than a year old, I thin almost a year and a half, and it's still the same price.

This is because Panasonic specifically has the philosophy of putting a price tag on its new cameras that's too high relative to its value, because they figure some suckers will bite and they will have a windfall from them.

Here in the UK it is about 20% cheaper than it was at launch, and there still offering a free grip, its been this way for quite a while.
