Yep, apples and oranges obviously, but E-M5 looks really good.. as good as APS-C. I'm thinking of selling D800, because I don't enjoy the bulk and want a compact/portable system with good IQ.

I, too, have both cameras. I traded in my Nikon D7000 for the OM-D in order to have a lighter, more portable travel alternative. As a direct replacement to the D7000, it has performed wonderfully well and the range of lenses available is superb. It won't, however, replace the D800. For low light high ISO performance, image detail, DR and the ability to crop extensively whilst retaining resolution, the D800 comes into its own.

I won't be replacing either of these cameras anytime soon.
