regarding noise at higher sensitivities

They say a picture paints a thousand words. While I can´t comment on your dilemma regarding which camera/lenses to keep etc - I will tell you that I have the much older E-500 and the 14-54mm mk1. And I too find that noise becomes intrusive at around ISO-800. But in low light conditions, I just crank up the ISO and put the file through basic noise-removal software. Does the trick. Takes seconds. Below is a hand-held example shot at ISO-1600 with moderate noise removal (no flash). Still a usable & acceptable shot.
