Re: Advanced legacy lens user: What to choose Olympus OM-D E-M5 or Sony NEX-6?

These two cameras are very fine cameras indeed. Both with their own strong and weak points, you summed up very well.

For landscape the wider aspect ratio of the APS sensor can be an other plus for the Nex.

IQ wise the Nex and the OM-D are so close that that will not be very noticable in real life so it is not a real deciding point.

A very important point is handling. Try both cameras in a shop. Go for the camera that handles best.

For IBIS: When doing landscape in good light, and/or with wideangle lenses IBIS is not giving you a lot more room to take pictures, a tripod will be a better companion even when your camera has IBIS. When taking movies IBIS is great.
