It depends how you shoot. In low light, the omd is much better. In good light, the difference is a lot smaller. The e-pl1 is capable of great results.

Still, lenses are the safer bet. Go buy a nice quality prime like the 45mm 1.8, or maybe the 20mm 1.7, and enjoy. Even better, when you decide it's time to upgrade to that new camera body down the road, you will still have that nice new lens to use with it. If you decide to sell it down the road, lenses hold value well, so you'll get most of your money back.
