I already own ALL of those and quite happy with all of them. I even built my own computer since one did not exist with of the requirements I wanted.

It would be nice indeed, if there were modular cameras, we just could built like a sub sandwich. Technically this certainly would be possible.

The only thing I don’t have yet is a camera that has what I want without all the compromises that I listed in my original post. As soon as the m4/3 system comes out with what I require, I will consider purchasing one. I wish some company would come out with a new and improved, highly efficient 1 inch sensor with 14-16 that has smaller/better quality lenses that would compete with m4/3 format since I am not interested in narrow DOF.

Did you try? I wasn't interested in shallow DOF either, until I got a fast tele lens. It opens up a new dimension!

Maybe that would make it more compact and desirable, for me anyway. I currently have a Canon G12 and would like to go to a larger sensor camera with much better/sharper IQ,

Any mFT can give you that.

faster everything,

Any mFT camera is faster

unfortunately one does not exist yet IMO.

What I don't quite understand is that your all requirements have to be fulfilled by every mFT camera.
Perhaps you should consider to get more than one body, which I think is always a sensible thing to do - you have a back up, if one of them fails and you have less trouble changing lenses.

One last thing: if small size is important for you: perhaps you should look for a "enthusiast" compact camera like the G12: the Sony RX 100 offeres a larger sensor, even smaller size and might even be faster.
