Sure I also like to pay as little as possible but (from B&H this morning)

The Olympus E-PL5 costs about $600 w/lens

The Olympus E-P5 costs about $1,000 w/o lens

The Olympus E-M5 costs about $1,300 w/lens

The Nikon J3 costs about $546 w/lens

The Nikon V2 costs about $1,000 w/lens.

I'm sorry but I don't see where the Nikon prices are out of line.

Nikon appears to agree with you . . . unfortunately for them (and potentially for we N1 system owners) the majority of the public doesn't see it that way.

It is up to Nikon to either do a better job justifying their prices or adjust accordingly. And FWIW you didn't add to your list that you could get a brand new D5200 with lens for less than the V2.
