Re: OM-D5 w/12-50 or X-E1 w/18-55?

My main arguments going for a XE1 are IQ at ISOs above 1600 and the external controls. Also the kit lens is sharper and brighter compared to the Olympus 12-50mm.

Cons against it are the EVF lag, AF speed, customizability, lack of raw support by third parties.

You already have a DSLR so the XE1 will complement it well, as it does my D600. I think if you had to have only one camera the Oly E-M5 would do better, but as a compliment to a DSLR the XE1 will match or exceed your DSLR in IQ with a significant reduction in size.
