Panasonic Leica 50-200mm v 100-400mm prices

The pricing of these seems strange.  Yes, the 50-200 has slightly more elements than the 100-400, but it's also considerably smaller and lighter.  Maybe the two lenses could reasonably be priced around the same.  But I can get the 100-400 for £840, while the cheapest I can find the 50-200 is £1190.
Perhaps the 50-200 is priced like that because there's no competition in same range/speed area, but arguably that's true of the 100-400 too.  But maybe I just have to wait a couple of years.
