Why is an OM-D better than a Pentax K-5?

Many cameras are better than the OM-D.

Of course the K-5 is better. So is the E-5, D800, 1Ds IV, XZ1, LX1, E-1, LX1, 645D, Elph 300HS, TG1, E-PL3, GH2,.... depending on your priorities, budget, interests, personality, past experience, current gear, self-image, perspective....

If the K5 does it for you, then go for it. It's a DSLR compared with a CSC. There are pros and cons for each and it's very subjective. Personally, I want the OM-D but am not willing flog my DSLRs and 4/3rds Zuiko lenses to get one. That said, every spec sheet is only part of the equation.

What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?
