Honest question, I am not trying to troll. I've never shot Pentax, though a good friend is very happy with them. I've just got a lot of money wrapped up in m43, an OM-D order, and I'm starting to wonder if maybe I've gone crazy. By the spec sheets, they seem like awfully similar cameras with the hard numbers tipped in favor of the K-5.

Is it just down to (good) live view and size?

I'm afraid you will be frustrated with E-M5. This camera makes even seasoned Olympus fans to scratch their heads: wast menu, numerous options and configurations make folks wander.
Be ready for the shock - this camera is tameless
I’m surprised how much Wikipedia contributes to the forum.
