Canon just announced 100D. Being 17 grams lighter and a friction bigger than OMD, one may say there is almost no compromise.

If they continue their tradition, the compromise in getting the Canon will be:

(1) less DR and color depth

(2) awkwardly thicker

(3) no wide angle primes beyond 24mm (38mm equiv). And without primes, your size advantage is essentially gone. And then you have to choose between really fast and huge (f/1.4) and slow and compact (f/2.8). All the while getting little to no improvement in the sensor. There's real value for having lenses that are actually designed for the sensor size you're using.

The only real improvement is in shooting action with PDAF...though Canon's CDAF is likely still slower.
