You are comparing a weather-sealed, non-extracting lens to a retractable power zoom lens. If size does matter, you can use the Panasonic 14-42 X lens with the E-M5: http://j.mp/WqMQZH

For me personally, solidity is more important than size. I used the retractable Olympus 14-42 II for some time on an E-PL2, but never liked the fiddly folding mechanism and extracting zoom barrel.
