I think we will see nothing but higher prices with lower unit sales going into the future. M43 will look more and more of a bargain if OLY stays in business or not.

We will miss the days when we could buy a capable body for $1,000 and a kit for $1,500.

It almost seems like that has to happen.  Two of my watch company favorites - Fortis and Ball - have raised their prices significantly and I think it's just a matter of "this is what we need to stay in business".  I don't know if they will or not because I don't know if enough people are willing to spend that.  They're not Omega or Breitling after all.  Some interesting parallels between the Swiss watch and Japanese camera industries - not apples to apples but you get what I mean.
