A few points.....

1) The difference in quality between an APS-C and m4/3 sensor will rarely be noticeable, and when it is, the differences will be slight.

Debatable. The X-Pro1 sensor is not only larger though, it lacks AA filter, which could potentially make the difference massive.

2) The sensor has nothing to do with bokeh. That's all on the lenses. The sensor size does determine depth of field (and amount of background blur), but that is different than bokeh (DOF/background blur is the amount of blur, bokeh is the quality of the blur). The differences in background blur between APS-C and 4/3 is not very much.

With a 35 mm on the 4/3 and a 50 mm on the APS-C and a subject distance of 2 meters and f/2.8 aperture the 4/3 has a DOF of 27 cm and the APS-C has 18 cm, not insignificant.
