If you want one that bad, just buy it.

Sounds like you're trying to talk yourself out of it with this rather ill informed rant, and not doing very well.

First off, this is not the µ43 forum, it's the Oly SLR forum.

The EM1 is about the size of the EM5 with vertical grip attached. Since the vertical grip never leaves my EM5, it's for all practical purposes, the same size. Which is smaller and quite a bit more slender than the smallest Canon DSLR.

Doesn't have better IQ than previous efforts? Put HG or SHG glass on it, it will have quite a bit better IQ.

If few µ43 lenses match the Canon 70-200 F4, none match the ZD 50-200 F2.8-3.5. I know that from personal experience.

If the EM1 was built for 4/3 owners, that's probably why Oly is also bringing out two fast and sharp zooms in native µ43 mount: 12-40 F2.8 and 40-150 F2.8.

The EM1 is an exciting new camera. Unlike most DSLR's, it has a lot more new about it than a few more MP, and a couple of new menu options, all of which you'll notice a lot less than the price you'll pay.
