I own an OMD and a NEX. But based upon your described preferences, sounds like the XE1 may be a good choice. BUT be sure you're OK with its relative limitations. I think OMD is a great all-arounder. Personally I bought it because of the MFT lens selection and the weather sealing, especially the weather sealed 60mm Macro since I love nature macros.

Try to test one in person if possible.

I too really appreciate environmental sealing. I just wrote that I'm now tending towards the OM-D due to it's overall functionality despite slightly lower IQ.

Testing is difficult.  I can handle both cameras in-store (and have many times), prefer the OM-D's customizability and faster DSLR-style controls.  But what would be best is to be able to test them somewhere with shadows, dynamic range, soft forms, natural colours - not the clinical, hard-edged fluorescent-bulb uniformity of a store!
