As for the SL1, it's...

10% narrower, 3% shorter, and weighs 18% less than the Olympus E-M1.

You might want to take another crack at it.,448

Weighs 2% more with battery and card, and is 66% thicker. From what I can see, the extra width comes from the admittedly stupid strap lugs on the EM5. Don't know where you got your numbers from but they're incredibly wrong.

I don't know what people's obsession is with the SL1. It's arguably the worst and most cynical of Canon's offerings. It's a worse camera than a T3i, D5100, or K-30 for more money.

The D5100 is a strong offering so that's a tough comparison.  Same sensor and imaging chain as the D7000 (comes in dxomark at 80 which is very strong score).  If someone shops around they can find refurb right now for around <$400.  Arguably the best price to performance ratio available on any format.
