All else being equal, a larger sensor and bigger, faster glass is always going to get a bit more light captured, so a bit more detail, a bit less noise.

That said, however, there is a question of diminishing returns here--how often are you going to need an extreme blowup/crop? How big you going to print? How dark a scene are you gong to want to shoot? If you're never going to push the limits of what the camera can do, then the benefits of that last 'what am I missing' capability might be nothing at all.

At the level of camera you're talking about, it's really about the fit of the camera to you--any of them (dSLR, M43, SLT) are going to do a good job.
