Significately cheaper?  Have you checked the prices.  I just checked the B&H prices.  The Canon 7D is $1,499 and is around 4 years old.  The Nikon D300s is $1,695 and is a 4 year old camera with an uodate 2 years ago.  The Pentax K5ii is $1,265 and is a 4 year old camera with a update a year ago.  Rumors have these three cameras being replace late this year with prices above $1,500.

So if the E-M1 is competitive with these "pro-level" when it comes to features, and userability then the rumor price of $1,500 sounds like a good competitive price.

It is good to see Olympus expanding the mft camera line up into the "pro-level".  Let these high speced/price camera pay for the features that will trinkle down into the lower price cameras.
