Go for the empirical answer: with your m4/3 camera in hand, visit a store that sells the Leica lens. Using your own memory card, shoot some test frames with the lens. Back at home, examine the frames to see whether or nor the IQ satisfies you. If it does, return to the store and buy the lens. If it doesn't, find an APS-C body which meets your needs. I suspect you'll find the lens satisfactory (unless you're into pixel peeping).
