Questions:

  • how much am I compromising with the m4/3 sensor vs APSc in terms of dynamic range and high ISO?

A lot.

  • how is the 14/2.5 compared to 16/2.8, optically (I know the latter is a little too wide for comfort)?

Probably somewhat better. Probably not earth shattering...probably.

  • if I use my Pentax primes, which one will focus better?

NEX typically handles a lot better with manual focus due to peaking and better screens than something old like the PL1.

Personally, I'd be inclined towards a GF2/3 + 14mm kit rather than the E-PL1.
