Absolutely. The MFT does a number of things very well. What the A7/r brings to the party is more. But in the overlap area, there is little to no benefit of the A7/r. The two most coveted A7/r benefits are its low light (high ISO) ability (coupled with fast FF lenses) and its overall IQ (if you need it).

If you already have the E-M1, then you are already used to the bigger camera bulk. I still use a Nex-6/7 and I find the A7 to be quite a bit larger camera. Especially since it requires a larger camera bag (because of the hump).

yes, I agree with you

I find the E-M1 really the perfect size for handling. To be honest I wasn't considering it until I saw on in a shop with a 75mm lens on it. The most beautiful combination with just the right density.

Probably the reason I bought my first M9
