Exactly: it's the price of miniaturization.

We are lucky that we can get high quality camera's and optics in a much smaller package without actually paying more than for the bulky full frame stuff.

When I moved up from my Canon aps-c  setup to the E-M5 I already spent more money and now I still need to get the 12-40 f/2.8. In the end m43 is certainly not (much) less expensive than similar quality in a larger format. Making things smaller while keeping the same image quality is a real challenge and it shows in the price.
