Are you asking why the EM5 doesn't sell as well as some of the big DSLR models? There are probably several reasons. For one thing, I don't see any of the Micro Four-Thirds cameras in stores. I think a lot of people do their camera shopping at Target, Walmart, Costco, Best Buy, etc. I've never seen any MFT cameras at any of these businesses. So, many people just simply aren't aware cameras like the EM5 even exist.

Another reason could be that many people see working "pros" using the big black DSLR and big lenses and they figure the big cameras are the best. So that is what they buy. Those of us that read this website are probably in the super-minority relative to all camera buyers.
