Yes, after a price drop, that will be a real contest. For DX slrs, upgrade lenses are not that expensive. A basic DSLR + 50mm 1.8 + 35mm 1.8 + 85mm 1.8 + kit lens = less than 1500 and the quality will beat any m43 combination within the same price range by a mile.

Strange combination of focal lengths (no wide prime), but if I were to pick a similar setup it would be (prices from Amazon):

E-PM2 + kit lens $499

Olympus 45mm $400

Panasonic 20mm $368

Panasonic 14mm $250

Total $1517 and will not be beaten "by a mile" by any DSLR.

Absolutely, a silly kit for someone that wants to travel light, and similar prices.  I think you should add a $99 evf to the cost of the oly.  If I had gotten in on the mothers day sale on oly, I would definitely have gone the pm2 route.  The pm2 was $429, and the oly 45mm was $340
