do you miss the DOF control of larger sensor? Does OM-D EVF compare to Nex7's, does it lag?

I can only comment on the first question. I'd say that the difference in DOF between FF and μ43 is substantial enough that it would be missed by users, but the difference between APS-C and μ43 isn't enough to really matter, at least in my opinion

At 10 feet, wide open the PL25mm f/1.4 only has an additional 8 inches of DOF compared to the Fuji. That's not a whole lot at all. And only those occasions when you have time to manual focus, the Voigtlander 25mm f/.95 makes the entire question irrelevant.

Granted, MF isn't going to give you fast AF, but just for reference, he's a portrait of my wife with a Voigtlander 58mm f/1.4 adapted to my G2.
This is shot at f/2:
