To the OP: You need to decide if you want compact size (GX7, GM1, or Oly EP/L/M-x) vs. feel and ergonomics of a small DSLR-type camera. And all the EM cameras are not much smaller than a DX Canon SL1.

I brought a friend to B&H last week to give her an overview of cameras around $700. Nikon, Canon, Pentax APSCs and M4/3 cameras. I can ASSURE you, the Canon SL1 is massive in comparison to the OMDs, especially the EM10. My GX7 looked awfully small next to it. Don't forget to compare lens sizes!

BTW, she bought a GX7.
