What Olympus actually promised:

Reality check

So your 2 top priorities in a camera are AF speed and battery life, not IQ, not performance, not focus accuracy, or other features.

The E-M1 focuses faster than any Olympus DSLR with new lenses and just as fast as many older Olympus DSLRs with 4/3 lenses, so that should not be a deal breaker.  All you are left with is battery life, but you can get a grip with 2 batteries so that should not be a deal breaker either.

I would say a deal breaker is the combination of lower IQ, lesser focus accuracy, slower performance, worse IBIS, slow FPS, lower resolution, tiny lens selection (the E-M1 can be used with virtually any lens on the planet).
