    Here in the UK the prices for the 45-150 and 45-175 X PZ are £220 and £330 respectively, on average. You can indeed get a discounted Panasonic 1080HD camcorder for as little as £140, but not with the benefits of the big sensors in Micro Four Thirds, etc.

    Customer confusion and the Chivas syndrome

    Off topic, but all technology corporations do this because consumer confusion causes the average person to spend more money than necessary. The average person gets confused by all the features and ironically, instead of buying the less expensive camera with fewer features, he buys the more expensive feature laden camera and justifies it with, "it must be better" or "I will figure it out later".

    There is also the "Chivas Regal syndrome." where the consumer assumes "It must be better if it cost more."
