Re: This doesn't add up

So make a list of 'essential' features and do a bit of research to see how much they all cost.

Bear in mind that you also need to do a lot of research about how landscape photography is actually shot to get the most out of a large sensor.  Handheld at f1.4 in Aperture priority is most certainly not how it's done.  Tripod, ISO 100, f8-11, shutter as slow as it needs to be... Now pretty much every lens can do that.  So the question is are you after critical sharpness?  What else do you use the camera for?  We get you like the compact form factor - but m4/3 actually has more compact lenses in general - have you thought of the E-PM2?  It's got the same sensor as the OMDs and you would get closer to your small+fast factor on m4/3 than you would on NEX.  The downside is high ISO noise but you said you don't want to use high ISOs anyway.
