You can check out the sizes and prices of E-M5+12-50+40-150 vs, say, 70D+15-85+55-250, which will give you approximately the same abilities.

It will not.

Yes it will. Check out the sensor ratings, sure, Canon's sensor is a little bit wider and a tiny little bit higher, but it's outdated technology takes all the advantage back. Actually, at low ISO m43 sensors now destroy Canon APS-C and even better than Canon FF, and at high ISO m43 and Canon APS-C are practically the same.

No, it will not. The Canon combo with the standard zoom is 136/9 eq. at the long end, the m43 is 80/12.6 (Yew!). The Canon has a wider aperture at the wide end as well but not by much. With the telephoto lenses, the Canon goes to 400/9 eq., while the m43 is 300/11 - both shorter and slower, not to mention resolution.

The new m43 sensors beat Canon's at low ISO in DR only, by 0.7 EV (yeah, that destroys it!) - and I really doubt that most m43 users know how to make use of that. In other metrics, they are close, sometimes Canon is better, sometimes the Oly but the difference is too small to worry about - and the format difference is small, as well.
