An entry-level price is the Nikon D3200 which sells for less than $500 with the kit lens. The EM-10 is $300 more expensive. Yet the D3200 gives you a real optical viewfinder and a bigger 24MP sensor that has a much higher sensor score at DXOMark.

A real optical viewfinder? I think you missed the whole point of mirrorless. Have you compared the 2 viewfinders? I wouldn't ever go back to a DSLR mirror viewfinder, not even a full frame prism type, not to mention the small dim mirrored ones.

The current model D3300 is $650 with Nikon's kit lens, $150 less than the EM10. For that price you do get a 24MP sensor, but you also get a much larger kit (720 grams vs. 490), a very small OVF with no on-screen information capabilities, an LCD without touch control, no dual control wheels, no IBIS, less video capability and no system of fast small lenses.

A size comparison with each camera's kit kit lens:
