The GX7 is widely available for around $700. It basically has tracked the E-M10's price, and the E-M1 is now widely available for around $1150, and it is a vastly more capable camera overall than the V3.

well, Adorama and B&H both at $997.99.

I give up, you win, I am done trying to discuss with the slippery eel or chase the greased pig. Like what you like, buy what you buy, I will say one thing, you most certainly are consistent .....

By the way, as to the "vastly more capable", since you seem to ignore what I stated as my personal reasons for looking at the V3, when the em1 can perform AF with my 400 f2.8 as well as the V3, you might have a point, including focus tracking at 20fps. Let's see, widely available at $1150, hmmm, Best Buy - 1299.99, B&H 1299.00, Adorama 1299.00. All good systems, in my personal opinion.

Current Panasonic GX7 deal: $609.95 on ebay - brand new.

I believe that this is a gray market camera from Canada, and the 1 year warranty is through the vendor.  But the price for fully U.S. warranted product right now is $948 at all authorized U.S. dealers including the excellent kit lens that invariably is fetching $150 or more by itself.
