Nikon D600 is out in the lead at the current time and probably retails at way below what any Olympus DSLR will cost, should it ever materialise.

"Far below" seems a little unlikely.  About the same price seems more probable.

Yes I will have to invest in glass but looking at some of the crazily high prices for good quality second-hand Olympus lenses

Looking for decent lenses for the Canon 60D our daughter recently bought, I again appreciated the immense coverage and value of the 12-60 and 50-200, and also  the value of the used 150f2 I bought for $1500 and the mint 7-14 that cost me $1250.  Crazily high prices? In my experience - about 40 years, with Leicas and Nikons as well as Olympus - O lenses tend to be good to very good buys.

I reckon that with a bit of luck on ebay I will raise enough cash to go a long way towards purchasing Nikon replacements.

Depends what you are looking for...and how much weight you want to carry.  Always remember that the size&weight and cost of a camera body is only one -often minor part of that of the whole system
