The reason for the E-M1 being bigger is because many of us complained about the small size of the E-M5. In addition, it has to be bigger to handle well with the 4/3 lenses.

For your information, the E-M1 has many more additional or improved features compared to the E-M5. Here are what I have found:

- Auto CA correction

- 1/8000 sec and 1/320 sec flash sync speed

- 3.5mm audio input

- improved IBIS (5 stops claimed)

- larger and better EVF

- better LCD

- better IQ (no AA filter and better processor)

- Focus Peaking

- Much better grip (like have the horizontal grip of the E-M5 built-in) and handling

- More buttons

- in-camera HDR

- Wi-Fi

- better AF tracking

- better construction (1 piece magnesium alloy)

- better weatherproofing (freezing)

- improved operation/buffering

- use of 4/3 lenses if you should need something special and still not in M43

- and a good sized built-in grip, and yes, for many of us, the bigger size is an important improvement.

It is true that it is not for everyone. Many would prefer a cheaper E-M7, but for those who need the higher specs and can afford it, there is a choice now. More choices are always better.

It's not nice of you posting all these features when I just thought I had decided not to get it
