Firstly, one reason you might use APS-C over 35mm is because you can't afford 35mm.

True.

Secondly, your comparison only works because you're comparing APS-C DSLRs to mirrorless M43 cameras. Try comparing your E-M1 to an X-E1, an NEX-6 or an EOS-M. Better yet, try comparing it to the A7.

I looked closely at NEX-6 before finally deciding on M43 format.  Generally, Sony's lenses are much larger than M43, and one year ago, the selection was quite limited.  That is changing...

I also looked at Fuji but the camera bulk, slow focusing, and retro thing kind of turned me off.  All completely subjective, of course  

It's also worth noting that a lot of the smallest mirrorless bodies have very few physical controls, so everything becomes some form of trade-off.

True.  I dipped my toe in the water with the E-PL5 but the lack of controls drove me crazy.  The E-M1 changes all that.  I call it my 'Mini D800'.

Here are some snap shots taken during my first few days with the camera...
