I totally agree.

Olympus has a confusing product strategy since a long time. (PEN only product line, inconclusive feature distribution)

The EM-5 is the first move in a better direction.

Unless I am reading too much into this, I think this is a nice move back to Olympus' strategy of giving you more for less money. The actually had a fairly decent 10% market share when they were pushing E5xx two lens kits out the door for under $500, even if they weren't making very much money on the deal.

Up until now, the M4/3 marketing plan seems to have been "give the customer less, and charge them more." I see this OM-D as a move back to the direction of giving the customer good value, excellent features, and incredibly good build quality for their hard earned money.

Lets face it... after a dozen Olympus M4/3 cameras... this is the very first one to include an EVF And all the other features will probably send Sony, Samsung, and even Panasonic back to the drawing board.
