I think Sony Nex 7 or the fuji 100x Pro might suite your needs.

I own a Sony Nex5, and would share the point that the system isn't built out yet.  But I cringe at the thought of you going from a 36 meg d800 to m43.  The Sony is at least Apsc at a fraction of the size of my D300s. It's all about compromise, and you end up compromising on some feartures you use occasionally, or compromising on IQ on EVERY shot.  In fact, not dealing with your issues, I went Sony over M43jst for the IQ.

By the way, you can buy adaptors to fit older lenses in manual mode. My Konica Hexanons are stunning on the Nex 5, although inconvenient to shoot.
