OMD owners who regularly use Pany Lenses - is the water fine, safe to jump into the pool?

I've been tempted by the OMD since it's release (IQ, IBIS and look and feel), but so far have stuck with the Pany G series, (G3 and now G5). Apart from the Oly 60macro which is just amazing, my favourite lenses are all Pany 7-14, 14-45 and 20/1.7 and I've been put off by issues I've read concerning use of these lenses on the OMD ...greater flare, uncorrected CA out of camera etc. I know these sort of issues can easily be blown up to more than what they really are on forums. The CA issue is readily corrected in PS, but it's the sort of thing that would probably annoy me, but then I don't know how noticeable it is in most images.

So for those OMD owners out there using the Pany lenses above, does the OMD still shine as bright, do the 7-14, 14-45 and 20/1.7 still shine on the OMD? Thanks for sharing.

PS. no I'm not interested in the GH3. I have no interest whatsoever in video and prefer a smaller body and the IBIS would be nice for use with the Oly60.
