It's not Nikon's fault that people want something for nothing.
Its all about choices. You choose not to spend that much, so you don't get that much. It's like buying a large bag of apples but telling the checker that you will only pay them the price for two - and then you walk home with only two apples and not whole the bag. If you only want two apples in the first place, don't gripe about the price of the bag.
Personally I think the M4/3 are way over priced. If one wants the same basic features, focal range, flash, dials, color bit depth, Manual Controls, etc - you can't walk out of the store for less than $1000 and the IQ is not that much better than these. I think the $400-$500 range and 50% less than M4/3s is a great price for what you get with it.
Many P&S are way over priced but the build quality and manual controls are worth a lot in my book. Most P&S drive me insane with the lack of controls I want over the image.
I like Fuji also. X100 with me every day and now I am really anxious to see what the X10/X50 will be. Might be time to offload the G11.
