Am in the midst of a big spring break road trip and my only body is the E-M5, plus a mix of system, 4/3 and legacy lenses. The kit is flat-out working and let me tell you, NOT lugging the honking E-5 around SeaWorld for eight hours is a blessing I can't place a value on. I finally figured out the CAF, as a small bonus.

Cheers,

When I go on vacation I bring the E-5 and the 18-180mm.  It allows me to bring 1 body and 1 lens that can capture a wide variety of situations.

The OM-D offers great primes but limited telephotos.  I would tend to say that the E-5 and the 18-180mm would be similar in weight to the OM-D and 3 primes and the 12-50mm kit lens.
