The OM-D's weight is probably a lot less because it uses more plastic bits. This is no bad thing -- it just means that plastic as an engineering material has gotten both more respected and better since the OM-4.

The E-M5 body (including the top and bottom plates, hump etc.) and its internal structure are made of magnesium alloy. There is hardly any plastic unless you count the body cover. Look at the photos of the body casting and the disassembled camera in this report from CP+2012 in Japan:
