I didn't read through all of the responses in this thread, I was just responding to your comment about macro working distance.

I agree with your comments re the current 4/3 sensor. You may have noticed I'm using the OMZ 135mm on a Canon 5DIII. The 5D was not intended as a 4/3 replacement, but I'm finding that it allows me to do things that are impossible with the E-30 or E-5.

With the canon I can use M mode , set the shutter speed for what I need (eg fast for bug in flight or flower swaying in a breeze), and independently set the Aperture for the required DOF.
With Auto ISO the camera does the rest. In bad light 1/1000 sec at f/11 without a flash is easy work when ISO 12800 is usable (picture below). So you aren't the only one looking to Olympus for a better sensor in a new DSLR
