I am sorry how much? Who the hell is going to pay that for a android phone wedged onto the back of a camera! Considering a lot of new cameras allow you to connect to your phone or tablet anyway.

Nice cameras but awful price, IMHO. It will probably drop in a few months, but still be comparable to a semi-pro DSLR.
