You can check out the sizes and prices of E-M5+12-50+40-150 vs, say, 70D+15-85+55-250, which will give you approximately the same abilities.

It will not.

Yes it will. Check out the sensor ratings, sure, Canon's sensor is a little bit wider and a tiny little bit higher, but it's outdated technology takes all the advantage back. Actually, at low ISO m43 sensors now destroy Canon APS-C and even better than Canon FF, and at high ISO m43 and Canon APS-C are practically the same.

No, it will not. The Canon combo with the standard zoom is 136/9 eq. at the long end, the m43 is 80/12.6 (Yew!).

Not 80, 100. You cannot multiply 50*2? And go find me another Canon APS-C zoom which starts from 24mm equivalent which I can take with me? I can always crop from 100mm, can you "uncrop" from your 18mm (29mm equivalent) to 24mm equivalent? Moreover, with EVF I can crop with full VF preview right in the camera, simply by setting 3:4 ratio and turning camera 90 degrees, can your OVF do the trick?

The Canon has a wider aperture at the wide end

It does not, it is still f/3.5.

as well but not by much. With the telephoto lenses, the Canon goes to 400/9 eq., while the m43 is 300/11 - both shorter and slower, not to mention resolution.

Again, you multiply apertures without regard for sensor performace. In fact, at f/5.6 and the same shutter speed necessary for the shot both will use the same ISO, regardless of your multiplications, and at the same ISO both will have approximately the same image quality (in fact higher on Olympus at low ISO).

The new m43 sensors beat Canon's at low ISO in DR only, by 0.7 EV (yeah, that destroys it!)

2/3EvĀ  - not so bad, the difference between Canon FF and Canon APS-C is smaller than that. And 0.3 bits in color depth. A little, but still nice for a smaller sensor. And when your DoF is too short, you will have to close apertures further for the shot and raise ISO destroying image quality even more - unless you prefer to shoot, say, a company of people with only one of them more or less sharp, or a nice building with only one window more or less sharp.
