Some of the more expensive micro 4/3 do a much better job apparently but they don't come cheap.
I agree with this to a point - my OM
-D was almost exactly the same price as a 7D when I bought it. I'd say they are comparable value ... the 7D is better in some respects, the OM
-D in others.
BUT this leaves lenses out of the equation. A number of the m4/3 lenses are offering quality matching top end DSLR lenses - esp. in the short tele to wide category - at a much lower price. A weak point with the m43 is lack of super telephoto - although with adaptors it is possible to mount nearly any lens ever made on an m43.
So in terms of cost, I think you need to look at total cost of ownership to make a fair comparison.
