Tough act to follow, and at $1400, well I'm just not going there (E-M1) at this time. I'll wait for either the E-M1 to become affordable or Olympus to come out with a less expensive body with many of the same features, which I think is inevitable given the competition.

For someone who does not have an E-M5, the E-M1 makes a compelling reason to acquire one over the E-M5.

Completely agree, for those like Charles and it appears yourself who have much invested in HG/SHG lenses, the E-M1 is a god send. And for those just entering mFT at the $1000+ range, the E-M1 also has appeal, although the GX7 would then catch my eye, as would soon to be increasingly discounted (my guess) E-M5's.

We'll see how the E-M1 does in the market at the price they've set for it.  It appears off to a strong start based on pre-orders, we'll see if this holds up.

And even if it doesn't, Olympus may be happy simply using it as their new flagship camera soon to be followed by a revamped E-M5 and a lower tier consumer grade full-featured body.  Those would make many people happy I think.
