How do they manage a 40MP shot from a 16MP Sensor?
The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II takes high-resolution imaging to a whole new level. In addition to the exceptional 16-megapixel stills you’ve come to expect from OM-D, the E-M5 Mark II captures 40-megapixel images*2 using an innovative pixel-shift technique that is facilitated by the voice-coil motor IS unit. The 40-Megapixel High-Res Shot mode captures eight sequential images, moving the sensor by 0.5-pixel steps between each shot. Then, the E-M5 Mark II compiles those images to produce a super-high resolution shot that rivals those captured with a 40-megapixel full-frame camera.

Missing- Any type of stabilization (IS, OS, VC). This is because Pentax bodies offer the stabilization and it is not needed in the lenses.  I would think that would allow them to keep the costs a little lower but looking at these prices I guess not.
