I find the GX7 competes more with the EP5, the EM5 and GX7 are totally different beast

I do not think a camera with a built-in viewfinder is a direct competitor for one requiring a bulky add-on unit.

The E-M5 and GX7 differ mainly in styling and a few features. Both are upper-consumer to semi-pro level bodies and cost roughly the same.

The add-on is not required for the operation of the E-P5. Without it, the camera is smaller than the GX7.

The add-on itself (VF4) is a better viewfinder than the one built-in the GX7.
