The best image is the one taken from the Olympus' cameras. The OM-D has a very familiar lens on it - the OM 50mm/f1.4. One of the best lenses ever made! (I have one...)
Before you think I'm trolling, let me set into rights. This - I mean the Canon - is a hell of a camera. At least for now, I'm only allowed to dream of it (it's not only the 3K for the body; it is also what I'd have to spend on lenses to make this camera justice), but this is the best IQ I've ever seen in this segment. Kudos to Canon. All cameras from 60D upwards have fantastic IQ, and I definitely see myself buying one of these - at least if I win the lottery, or in the very unlikely case this camera's still around when I get the dosh for it.
I couldn't help noticing this photo was taken at ISO 400, 15s exposure and f16. This is the way I like to shoot at night, despite this new belief high ISO is the only way to take night stills. That's wrong, of course, but deceitful marketing made its way into many people's minds.

Those old OM lenses were gems - the 24mm f/2 makes a super multiformat walkabout lens and it's pretty good on a 5D as well, with the right adapter.

Yes, Ashley, that one is on my wishlist. I also have the 28mm/f3.5, which is incredibly sharp, though sometimes it makes me wish for a little more speed.

Outstanding combination.

I think Canon will be pleased to see it also can picture its competitors' excellent camera. I guess picturing the Nikon D800 would just be pushing it too far..;-)

That Olympus OM-D is one sweet camera
