3. This camera ought to be scaring the sh*t out of the APS-C ILC camera manufacturers.

I disagree, I shoot 3 systems:

Canon Full frame DSLRs for paid work.

Fuji X100s for everyday. I bought this to fill a gap that my m4/3 bodies could not fill - HSS fill flash in bright daylight. The X100s has a leaf shutter that facilitates this (also helped by the built-in ND filter).

OM-D E-M5 is my toy / fun / travel system (I take this along with my X100s, never by itself, as I need proper daylight fill).

While I love M4/3, I'd never consider it to be a serious enough system to replace my Fuji or Canon. The E-M1 may be tough and weather sealed, but it's sensor is no match for FF & APS-C, IMHO.

I know pros who use the em5 and the sensor is good for them to ditch their full frame nikons.
