From your requirements

I'd definitely take the E-M1 over the 5... after adding grip and EV-4 to the 5, you're getting quite close to the E-M-1 price... and you still will be missing WiFi, HDR, full metal chassis and a bunch of other upgrades.

Biggest advantage I see to FF would be higher res and DR, biggest disadvantage would be size

9:1 macro? using a reversed lens or bellows?  Do you do much focus stacking?

I don't see shallow DoF being an advantage for landscape (depending on your style) or macro... perhaps for portraits.

As for looking more 'pro' to get into the press area, mount a 50-200 w adapter (or the 40-150 2.8 when it comes out) bulk up w the battery grip, and that should be sufficient to impress

BTW, how does one totally flatten one's kit? Steamroller? Tank?
