The E-M1 is overpriced, right?

I DO actually think the E-M1 is overpriced, but I checked out the current pricing on a GH3/12-35 combo. It's a few bucks above $2200, which is exactly what an E-M1 with 12-40 should be running when Olympus gets around to rolling out the danged kits. (Any day now Olympus!)

I'm not trying to touch off a GH3/EM1 fight here -- I think Panasonic is foolish for not offering the GH3 with 12-35 lens discounted in a kit, and I've always felt that they were asking too much for the 12-35 anyways. At the same time it's stupid that I can't buy the EM1 now and get the discounted lens later. But I found the comparative pricing interesting nonetheless.
