Until I found this camera listed for sale, I was also considering a Olympus E-PL2 and kit lenses.

I'm guessing that both are pretty close in over all IQ?

The Nikon J1/V1 sensor is rated as slightly better than the older sensor used in all the 12mp MFT models, including the E-PL2.  The Nikon has less noise and it is a less noticeable kind of noise.   That older Panasonic sensor used by Olympus had a lot of blotchy, colored chrominance noise, and the noise reduction used to reduce it caused smearing and loss of detail.   The J1 is a more modern camera overall.  It has its limitations, including some noise, but it definitely takes better pictures than that older Oly.
