Lens selection for NEX 7

I have chosen NEX 7 over OM-D.

The OMD focuses faster but I feel the color, white balance and the depth of field control(quality of pictures) and high ISO noise is better in NEX-7

Botht cameras are good ergonomically. The main gripe i have with NEX7 is that the movie button gets pressed inadvertantly and that is annoying.

The OMD's neck strp holder on the right side of the camera makes it difficult to hold comfortably.
So why am i posting this????

I have a wide lens selection in the micro 4/3d format. I have the Panasonic 7-4, 14-150, 100-300 20mm 1.7 and the Olympus 14-45, 12-50, 45 1.8 and 12 f2
For NEX 7, i have the black kit lens, the 18-200 sony and the Zeiss/Sony 24 1.8.

Something in the 18-30 range. Do i have any choice. How bulky does this camera become if you add the convertor to use sony alpha lenses.
Please help.
I feel the picture quality/DOF gain is significant enough to switch to SONY.
