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...

Sexy photos. I don't know that there's much more bulk to an EM-1 than to the X-E1, but the IQ of both cameras is fantastic.
