cameras seem like the two heavyweight rivals

They are not rivals. You can buy two GX7s for one E-M1. Who would sensibly compare any two products where one was twice the price of the other? If the more expensive model was not drastically superior for twice the money there would be something seriously wrong with it.

They're very different cameras.

The problem for the EM1 is that it ISN'T drastically superior To the GX7.

Olympus history, nostalgia, IBIS and the very cool Live Bulb feature aren't really enough to justify to premium price. If one has a bunch of 4/3 lenses that would certainly justify the price.

The GH4 will cost the same as the E-M1 so that will be the 'rival'.
