OP, in any case, the 40mm Zuiko is more of a collectors item then anything else so is pointless as an example of high Zuiko prices. Might as well complain about the price of a BMW whilst shopping for a Hyundai.
Many Zuikos have always been expensive, just look at the range of F2 lenses like the 90, 50 macro, any of the F2 wide angles. The 50/1.2 (and to a lesser degree the 55/1.2) has always been expensive, whilst the 50/1.4 has always been cheap, and the 50/1.8 much cheaper. The F2.8 and slower lenses have always been quite cheap. I bought an excellent 28/3.5 for $60 dollars recently, near mint too. Sure prices have been sliding up, that's understandable but no more than any other brand.
