Landscape Photography: 4/3rds VS APS-C

For those shooting landscapes with the 4/3rds I have some questions for you.

I know 4/3rds is a great format for shooting macro & wildlife images but what about landscapes?

Depth of field wise I would think 4/3rds would be a good format for shooting landscapes even though it is a smaller sensor. APS-C lets in more light for shooting in twilight and also helps in the noise factor. There are some trade-offs I would suspect shooting in both formats. So, my main question is in real life shooting does anyone experience major differences shooting 4/3rds from APS-C formats?  I shoot mainly landscapes and am considering getting a 4/3rds as I like their smaller sized bodies. Anyway, I would love to hear from those of you on this forum who are shooting landscapes with either Olympus or Panasonic. Currently, I shoot landscapes with an APS-C sensor so am very familiar with what it is capable. Looking forward to hearing your opinions on this subject.

Thanks in advance!
