Apart from image quality. The EM1 is without any doubt the better camera.

Removing IQ from a camera comparison is like testing the speed of two cars without any tires.

That's like saying the car of the year will always be the one with the most horsepower.

It absolutely does work that way, because cameras are bought by people with varying needs.  People don't blindly buy the camera with the best IQ; they buy the one that's best for their needs.

Further, best IQ is basically best sensor.  And in this case, the same sensor Sony sold to Nikon last year.

If you want to give out a camera of the year award to the camera with the best IQ, knock yourself out.  Meanwhile, others have their own criteria.  (You might not want to stop at the A7r, though ... if IQ is all that matters, check out Phase One).
