OMD an alternative to DSLR for amatuer action shooting?

Or should i go with the plan to upgrade my pen to a sony alpha or canon rebel?

I am an olympus pen user and love it however i am limited with it as i like shooting surfing and occasional snow sports with fast moving targets...

I was going to move up to an SLR but the olympus OMD-e5 does appeal to me..

However is its performance with fast moving subjects likely to be on par with entry level dslrs? or should i keep to the original plan and step up to DSLR if i want to shoot action?

Any thoughts appreciated

p.s i do realise most people probably havent actually used this new camera yet but hopefully a few might have
