Jefftan: Why should I buy this small sensor camera when the Olympus E-PM1 cost $500

$100 more for a small sensor camera?

Anyone tell me why?

The PEN lenses have poor apertures for night/concert shots.
I took a EPL-2 into a concert this year and the lenses (14-42, 40-150) were inadequate to say the least.
I like the X10 for the fast glass. The Oly XZ-1 isn't bad either. The key for these 2 cameras is you get great apertures at max telephoto (2.8 for the X10, and 2.5 for the XZ1)

This looks like the perfect camera concerts where SLRs aren't allowed. Fast glass plus high ISO in compact format is a dream!!
