Oly E-M1, what's the point of MFT?

When size and weight is no longer an advantage vs DSLRs.

Nikon's D5200 sells for less than half the price and seems to be more versatile than the E-M1.

The D5200 has higher resolution and better DR with larger sensor. Also PDAF tracking will always be faster than CDAF.

So unless one has accumulated MFT glass, why purchase the E-M1 when Nikon offers a DSLR that serves more photographic needs for a more reasonable price?

Any thoughts?

Cheers,

Luego
