Re: M43 seems more and more overpriced compared to NEX

I agree, I moved from Canon to M43 and enjoy the results and weight/size However:-

1. From the start M43 has been too expensive. I am sure that there was a marketing meeting at Panasonic that came to the conclusion that to be credible Lumix had to be expensive and they are still sticking to that decision.

2. The lenses are generally very good but again the primes are too costly. It is now well understood that products are not sold at what they cost but what the market will stand, just look at how rapidly 'old' models are discounted.

3. Other, third party, lens makers, other than sigma, are not prepared to enter M43 until there is sensible pricing which will open up the scope for a bigger share and make this format a real challenge to Sony and others.
