Will the Oly OM-D satisfy me - Need help

Dear forum-members, i am on the verge of purchasing an OM.
Will the Oly satisfy me in terms of IQ?
Yes, i am a pixel peeper, owning a Canon 5D M2 and enjoying
the great IQ the 5D delivers. But as you know carrying the "monster"
isn't as comfortable and i'd like to be "free" of heavy weight
Also owning a XZ-1 which is a really great cam and some time
Ago i also owned an EP-L 1. To be honest: I fell in love with the
Oly colors. Some weeks ago i returned from holidays and was
very happy with the IQ the XZ-1 delivered.
Also some time ago i purchased a Panny G3 but wasn't impressed
by its IQ. But have to say that the G3 Raws definitely were acceptable.
On the Panny i used the kit-lens (mediocre quality) and the 70-300
which perforned good. In the end i sold the G3.
I am a landscape and macro photog and like to hear any
comments or suggestions if the OM will fulfill my "wishes" in
terms of IQ. Maybe there is somebody using the OM besides a 5D
and can compare those two systems.
Any assistance is highly appreciated.
happy fotoing :: bobbidog
