Olympus is the real deal
2

The Olympus OM-D E-M5 reaches out to you.  It is a small system camera with a lot of really fine lenses available. You can add the Olympus two-level grip for added handling ability and battery life while still maintaining a small form factor. It also has built-in wireless multi-flash capability.

I use the Olympus E-PL5 (same sensor as the E-M5). The level of detail and dynamic range is truly excellent, not Nikon D800 "excellent", but excellent nonetheless.

I have the Lumix 8mm f/3.5 fisheye, Zuiko 12mm f/2, Leica 25mm f/1.4, and Zuiko 45mm f/1.8. This gives me a fast FE, 24mm, 50mm, 90mm kit with fine image quality across the board. Then you can add other lenses such as the Zuiko 60mm macro, Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 and 35-100mm f/2.8, and still retain an overall small kit.

If you want flexibility, small size, and good image quality, Olympus m4/3 is the real deal.
