IMO they are not so close:
1. One has Image Stabilization
2. One has an optical finder with the associated parallax, the other has an EVF with WYSIWYG as well as a real-time histogram or grid/scale...
3. One has manual Zoom/Focus ring, the other is "buzz" "buzz"
4. One is threaded for filter, the other needs an attachment hood
5. The A1 can shoot several RAW frames in a row, can the Oly?
6. The A1 can map its output to several colorspaces including AdobeRGB
7. The A1 can track focus a moving subject with its cursor, ah but I forgot the Oly is optical: http://home.tiscali.be/johan.branders/A1/A1-focus.htm
8. The A1's external flash system (ie multiple units setup) is wireless with TTL control. I believe you need at least a cable for the FL flash... for remote use
9... I can go on if you want

... Other than that they have about the same resolution
