The problem with CaNikon isn't the bodies, but the fact that decent lenses (i.e. which can match the Zuiko that I love, for instance the 50mm f/2 or 12-60mm) aren't cheap at all. But frankly, if I had several grands to spend like this then I would probably lean towards a proper Leica M setup...

I made a comparison some time ago based on B&H prices. I compared 3 Olympus SHG lenses 7-14, 14-35 and 35-100 to Nikon equal quality set and as I remember Oly set was a little more expensive. The total weights of both sets were comparable. On top of that if you put the Nikon glass on D800 you have triple the resolution comparing to Olympus E-5.

To me the superiority of Olympus lenses is a myth. Other companies can also produce a good glass competitively priced.
