Too expensive?

SAR estimates a price of $800-$850 USA.  The same estimates in Euros as well, which is a tad confusing as €800 equates to roughly $1100.

In any case, that's REAL high for a compact camera, even at the highest end.  Since I use my m2 mostly as a stealth street camera, I don't really need the wider angle, and I always shoot at the widest FL anyway, so maximum aperture will be the same.  EVF is a non-issue.

Even though I am moronically inclined to have the latest/best, I think I will be passing.
