Your canon lenses will get IBIS with Olympus.

But ... you have some nice lenses, and if you intend to keep them, I'd wait to see what Canon do about their own mirrorless camera.

However if the lenses themselves are too bulky, then m43 offers a more compact size, especially with its lenses, than does Nex. There are also more lenses available, and some are not bad value such as the 45mm Olympus lens for portraits. Although I have seen some Canon 50mm shots done from the OM-D, and the Canon lens did a really great job. But ... the 45mm will auto focus, and it will track peoples eyes (choose left or right) on the OM-D. For family shots, its more productive to have a good autofocus for typical happy shots than a manual focus lens.
