Interesting set of requirement, not easily met..

The EM-1 would definitely tick ALL the boxes other than the fact that the OP would ideally have the full frame advantages of DOF and subject isolation. Other than that, EM-1 sounds perfect.

Sony A7 / A7R also very nearly is perfect. An EVF and a Full frame sensor. The only concern is that the A7 will not be ideal for sports. It is a slow and deliberate kind of camera.

Sony A99 would also fit the brief - live view and EVF - Fast AF and good for sports, full frame sensor.

There is a rumour that Sony are bringing out a new full frame A series camera in a few weeks, so this may present some opportunities with a discounted A99, they are normally quite pricey.

I have some experience of the Sony A99. It is a great camera. In many ways, it feels to me a bit like a larger, full frame EM-1.

Sony A99 is the ONLY full frame camera with an EVF, fast AF and operation.
