Yes, flawed - here is a better comparision

That doesn't seem like a very good comparison. 20mm-F/1.8 on APS-C is equivalent to 15mm-F/1.4 on m43--four times the light gathering. Need to find a picture of a Pentax 21mm-F/3.2 pancake lens for a better comparison--although I'm sure the EM-5 would still be noticeably smaller.

This is with the 45 1.8 on the OM-D and the 43 1.9 on the K-5. With a grip on the OM-D the difference would be smaller. The E-5 has a Sigma 50 1.4 - there was not much to choose from in the widget.

BTW I know that the OM-D is smaller than the K5, what I dont agree with is the claim by a poster that the K5 is almost as big as the E-5.
