For some people small size and low price are the driving force.  For others is is handling.  I have both the E-M5 and the E-M1.  The E-M1 is in a totally higher class when it comes to handling.  It is becausethe size is perfect for having all those wonderful direct control buttons. It is a camera that you just want to control.  The GM1 would be a nice camera to hide away in your coat pocket to have with you all the time, but not one that leads itself  for direct control of the camera.  It is kind of like the difference between a sports car with a manual transmission and a subcompact with an automatic transmission.  Both will get you there but the sports car is a lot more fun.

Anyhow, I voted for the Sony 7R because it advanced the mirrorless concept to FF.
