Now that we've seen the EM1 and with the BG (which looks as if its going to be essential with the bigger FT lenses).. are we looking at a MRP of $1700-2000 for the two ?

If the adapter isn't free then add another 100-150 to the price , and then that's approx cool $1900-2150 for a M43 cam.

No one is going to be drug to the cash register kicking and screaming to buy the OMD EM-1.  I bought the E-5 new for $1699 USD and have no regrets.  That does not mean everyone else who thought about it went out and bought it.  In the end, each one will have to figure if the camera (and perhaps grip and adapter) is worth the price.

Last time I checked, supply and demand determined the price, and, as has no doubt been said before, you will not get something for nothing, and Olympus is not in business to loose money (well hopefully not in the long term).
