Reasons for me

I have the E-P3 but still bought the E-M5 for:
1) It has built in EVF (no risk of forgetting or losing the external EVF)
2) a weather proof body
3) better multi dials control
4) flip up LCD
5) slightly better IQ
6) silent vibration free shutter
7) faster AF
8) safer, tighter battery/SD doors, better build overall

On the other hand:
1) i still prefer to shoot the EVF especially at 90 degree angle
2) the smaller size of the E-P3
3) the builtin flash
4) looks better (silly I know)

See if any of these are compelling enough for you to upgrade
