Yeah but next thing you know you have $ 2000 and $ 4000 into your m4/3 or X-E1 setup.  Lenses here and there.

At that level of commitment IQ is paramount.

No m4/3 came close to the speed I needed for action photography, compared to the sureness of a DSLR.

What the X-E1 or X100 give you is the IQ of a DSLR in a small package.

The DSLR is still needed for action photography.

The m4/3 compromises IQ and lacks the action response.  It compromises both.
