You like Nikon, and they make really good gear.  90% of what anyone "likes" about a camera is between their ears.  If the camera works for for a person, that what they should use. Nikon works for you.  You're already familiar with the system, so I'd say go with what you like.

The only area where I think there's a real difference is in the weather resistance of an E-M5/12-50 kit.  I do a lot of hiking and that's a big deal for me.  Also like the small size, although that's a very idiosyncratic element.

The dirty little secret is that Nikon, Canon, Oly, Pentax and Fuji...OK....I'll include Sony...ALL make very good cameras.
