I think the JPEG rendering and in-body IS of oly is what tempts me to cross over. Oly will always have IS, no matter which lens you use... whereas pany only has IS on their lenses. JPEG can be overcome by lightroom... but the convenience...

Don't be so sure you'll avoid LR with the Oly either. You see, Panny has built-in correction for CA artifacts that lenses can produce, and some lenses produce more than others. For instance the super hyped 12-35/2.8 seems to easily prone to generate a lot of CA sometimes, and while Panny JPEG shooters don't really notice, the Oly JPEG shoots do notice. Just as Oly choosed to have IBIS, and Panny not, Panny choosed to implement automatic CA corrections, and Oly not. Yes the CA is easily fixed in LR, ... oh, we are back in LR again.
