That would depend entirely upon the owner's situation.

Pentax has those beautiful DA* primes, M43 has quite a few top rate primes now, too.

The Pentax zooms are a bit weak. So are the slower M43 zooms.

The Pentax/Sony sensor might preserve a bit more detail as compared to the Olympus/mystery sensor, or it might not, depending on who is using what.

Both are weathersealed.

EM5 can AF native glass very quickly, K5 is supposed to be okay but no speed demon on AF.

K5 has a couple of fast teles, EM5 does not unless you go to HG ZD.

K5 is one of the best midrange dslr's on the market today for image quality. EM5 is the best M43 body on the market today for image quality.

I suppose the EM5 is better if you already own some M43 glass. The K5 is better if you already own Pentax glass. If you don't own glass for either... it's your call.

Well said, I agree

Imagination is more important than knowledge.
