Re: Leaving DSLR - pros and cons of X-E1 vs OM-D EM-5

I don't think the IQ differences at low ISO will be hugely significant. The Fuji's main appeal is its control scheme and high ISO image quality. All else being equal you'll also have more depth of field control with the Fuji due to the larger sensor. But it's not a huge difference. The OM-D will provide IBIS and faster AF. Both cameras have great jpeg engines. The Fuji overall is quirkier in operation while the Olympus covers every need pretty well, though at times is hampered in the usability department (eg small buttons, long menus).

Personally, I can't really understand buying the Fuji if you don't care for the control scheme. That seems like such an integral part of the camera's appeal to me.
