  • What’s with the whole scheme behind insanely dropping the prices on Micro Four Thirds cameras; is it to flood the market with mirrorless bodies to encourage more photographers to go this route or is it to drive down the property value of the format in general!? I love the idea being on the consumer/professional end to have affordable bodies at my disposal but what the bigger picture here?

      Isn’t it just a consequence of refreshing (most) models every year?

    • E-PM3 is overdue. Just needs to add WiFi, but still. Maybe peaking.

        Not just the Epm3, but also the Epl5. And, the E-M5 II. What really is long overdue is an improvement in IQ for M43, since we have had the same IQ for 2 years already since E-M5 was released. All M43 models have the same 2 year old IQ, but others have caught up and passed us by.

          E-PL7 you mean?

          if the first 3 generations of the PEN are an indication, we’re still a way’s off of a new sensor. Hope they don’t wait so long this time around.

      The original model was overpriced at release to target the enthusiast audience.

      As sales slacked, prices were reduced to skim the next segment down.

      Repeat. Continue to lower prices to meet any remaining demand. Prices are lowered to meet the market.

      This is the pricing marketing strategy of most if not all high end camera makers right now. The artificially high launch prices are detrimental to the manufacturer’s own long term viability, of course, and is not sustainable. But they feel they have to do it to meet current quarter numbers.

      It’s ultimately self destructive.

    The EPM2 Kit bargain has been advertised several times before and is a current model. What is surprising is the GF2 bargain for a camera which has been out of production for 3 years for a price with 14mm lens less than the lens cost? Surely there can’t be many GF2s around and I can’t see Pany doing this as takes potential buyers away from the GM1?
