because of discounts on the E-M5II. This kind of price difference is the strange part of the camera
world.  Pentax's admittedly overpriced KP costs more than the vastly higher-spec'd K3II.  Age of
models is the key thing here. Though you don't see this happening much with Canon an Nikon and Sony
has so many models that they all blur at the mid-end.

After seeing the modest differences between the 16mp and 20mp sensors, I tend to agree.  The E-M5II
still has class-leading IBIS as well.
