A lot of people are excited with E-M1, I bought and sold it because I'm disappointed. In my opinion m43 shouldn't keep getting bigger and more complicated shouldn't be aiming only to please pros and semi-pros, we have full frame, APS-C, both mirrorless and DSLRs for that.

The EM1 is barely any bigger than the EM5 - it's just a few millimetres longer, and is only fatter because it incorporates the all-important side grip - a vital component of the improved ergonomics (which pretty much every EM5 owner has been banging on about). It has nothing to do with appeasing the pros, instead Olympus responded to the many gripes and niggles which were repeatedly raised by EM5 owners, and to their credit they appear to have addressed all of them. Not every professional or advanced photographer wishes to (or is able to) cart around heavy DSLR cameras and (more importantly) big lenses.

There are plenty of Micro 4/3 cameras which are abundantly suited to enthusiasts and hobbyists, which is why the EM1 filled such an important gap in the market, and was so enthusiastically received.

I agree the new EM10 will be terrific, and like its slightly bigger brothers, will continue to appeal to a very wide audience.
