I own both the Sony nex7 and the OMD. I use both with legacy lenses from pentax,leica,nikon and canon....all fast lenses. Focus peaking is not that accurate shooting at  f1.4-f2 unless you magnify the view with the nex7....there is no image stabilization though and not that easy to MF a magnified image unless on a tripod.  For me MF works better with the OMD since after magnifying the view if you press the shutter 1/2 way image stabilization kicks in... and it is a breeze to then MF the magnified stabilized image. I find it amazing that any lens I mount on the OMD is stabilized.....and it actually works! I`m keeping the nex7 since it has outstanding IQ at low ISO but the OMD is the everyday camera now...a joy to use.
