For instance, why show the top Olympus models, but not the top models from Canon and Nikon? That would pit the E-M1 against the very large D800 or D4s. Not fair, right?

Ok, how about just the E-M10 against the DX format D7100 with nearly equivalent lenses:


The E-M10, with the excellent 12-40/2.8 lens on it weighs only 17 grams more than just the 17-55 Nikon lens. And, the 12-40 is stabilized on the E-M10.

This is the sort of comparisons people make when switching. It's the sort I made when I switched.

[edit: sorry, I meant to reply to the OP]
