There is really only one reason to choose a compact DSLR
3

over a micro four thirds camera....

tracking auto-focus.

That is it.

Everthing else a u 4/3 camera does better or as well.

The main benefit of u 4/3 over  compact dSLR is Live View.

Live View really gives you a WYSISYG preview of exposure and white balance so you know you are going to get the shot exposed right before you take it.  DSLR live view is poorly implemented and just not as good.

Period.

So, you have to decide wheter or not you need really good tracking AF.  If you don't, there is really no more reason to go with a crop sensored dSLR.
