The fact that it didn't poll higher than it did probably relates to the very limited exposure time it had with the dpr members.

Bingo! The EM1 was available in stores several weeks mefore the GM1. Besides, E comes before G, so for people who vote alphabetically...

The EM1 is certainly a nice camera, but it's no more than I would expect as an upgrade from the EM5, at a correspondingly higher price and weight/size. The GM1 is more of a game-changer: m4/3 quality at a size that was thought to be impossible. I see that Sony is now scrambling to match the GM1 in size, but they're handicapped by the larger lens size the APS-C format requires.

I think Sony did a pretty good job on the full frame side, with the A7/R combo..
