Sony Nex-6 or Olympus OM-D or Fuji X-E1

I want a camera for short travel and street shooting.
Small, light and subtle, but needs to have good sharpness and detail.
I will probably shoot primes only.
I have narrowed down to these three but can't make up my mind.
Broadly, as I have read it, the score for each one (10 is best) :
1. Nex-6
Quietness: 5
Lens range (inc. 3rd party): 7
Good prime availability: 7
Price: 9
Dynamic range: 9
Detail: 7
Adobe raw capability: 10
EVF: 9
Focus (speed & accuracy): 8
2. OM-D
Quietness: 6
Lens range (inc. 3rd party): 10
Good prime availability: 8
Price: 7
Dynamic range: 8
Detail: 6
Adobe raw capability: 10
EVF: 9
Focus (speed & accuracy): 9
3. Fuji X-E1
Quietness: 7
Lens range (inc. 3rd party): 5
Good prime availability: 8
Price: 8
Dynamic range: 10
Detail: 9
Adobe raw capability: 7
EVF: 7
Focus (speed & accuracy): 6
In summary it seems that the Fuji is excellent overall but let down by low EVF refresh rate and lens range, although the ones released are probably enough for me.
The OM-D is super fast with a good lens range with the compromise on IQ, although very good on its own, in comparison to the other 2.
The Sony is a fast camera but a tad more noisy. Otherwise it treads a path between the Olympus and Fuji in terms of benefits and disadvantages.
Anyone think I am wrong anywhere or can express an opinion would be great!
Particularly someone who has had all three or two to compare, or any links to a good comparison
