Please finish convincing me to get the E-M5 with image examples....

I have a fuji x100, of which everyone here basically knows the good and bad things about it. Sometimes i love the camera and sometimes i want to give it away. So after giving it a lot of thought i am almost sure I will sell it to give another system a try.

So what is left... the ricoh with leica m module, is old technology, the sony nex7 seems to be a great camera, but a thing i have started to value is the old school look of the fuji, which for street photography is definitely a plus, and now comes the E-M5, which has the old school look, and a lot of technology in a small package. The fuji xpro01 is also an option but i am trying to avoid it as much as possible mainly because of the slow focusing and camera size....

This camera will be use mainly for street and travel my carry around every day camera.

Sadly from all the pictures being posted here in the forum as on flickr, i haven't seen anything that will convince me to get the olympus. I am interested in travel photography pictures as portraits and documentary, which will be the use the camera will get. And the only i been able to see here are casual shots, i am not saying they are bad, but just fall under common pictures that could have been shot even with a point a shoot. The pictures from the xpro01 as ricoh pop out of the computer, also you can find a lot of great pictures on the web and i haven't seen anything as this from the olmypus. I am almost sure the olympus is capable of this, but i haven't had a chance to look as dose sample.

Please provide examples... and this is not trolling at all. If i do get the camera i won't have a chance to handle it first, will be buying it from the internet without testing it.

Will i be able to get something as this with the olympus, please no photos of dogs, or plants....all of this were taken with the x100:
