Makes sense, since the EM1 is a specialty item

The EM1 may not have been the camera for you if you are happy with your E3.

This camera was designed for people with a large investment in 4/3 lenses who wanted a way to use them on a more modern camera. If the E3 image quality is good enough for you (and it certainly IS pretty darn good) then why would you want a $1400 camera that doesn't handle as well as they camera you already own?

For people without HG and SHG lenses, then the EM5, GH3, EP5 or GX7 makes much more sense. The EM1 offers virtually no major improvement over those cameras, other than PDAF ability.

I don't plan to get an EM1 either... but I do want that 12-40mm lens.
