Olympus is one stop dimmer, it's equivalent to 24-80mm f/5.6 on FF. And the weight and price, all other things being equal, is growing as f^2 to f^3. So, by that metrics, Olympus is way too heavy and too overpriced.

Bingo! No real advantage any more. And the GX7 is the best of breed - I like the images out of that camera more than Olympus. I'm sorry to always be saying this and don't mean to be a pill, but I don't see a future in M43 unless the size comes way down.
