Sounds like you want 5DII & 50 1.2 quality in a small compact, cheaper lens/body setup, might still cost you to achieve that. You could try the 50 1.2 on your 450D, that would be a good start to see what results you get wide open and what sort of noise you get when increasing the ISO.

There are other good lenses for Canon like the 35L 1.4 I use that with my 550D, that's pretty close to 50mm on a FF body, if you're ever in Hong Kong you could pick one up for $1300-1400 possibly cheaper.

For m4/3 did you consider the Olympus OM-D E-M5, it's getting good reviews although I read that there is noticible noise above ISO1600, lighting fast AF. It has quite a small body and quite a range of lenses to go with it.
