pretty much my type of photography, but i was using an 18-200 (love the 1 lens approach), so now i'm willing to go to 18-55 and 55-whatever (maybe)

Seems to me this lens choice between the 2 systems should perhaps be a more important consideration than your original post.

1) Both the Fuji 18-55 and 55-200 have optical image stabilisation so that IBIS will not give you much inherent advantage.

2) The 35-100 2.8 on the M43 is pretty much a stop faster than the 55-200 3.5-4.8 of the Fuji which clearly makes up for any sensor noise differential. The 35-100 is also lighter. The bad news is that it is also more expensive. The 12-40 2.8 is also faster than the Fuji 18-55 2.8-4.0 but again more expensive.

3) I would certainly take the M43 system with the faster (and no bigger) lenses if I had the choice and also the funding. I would take the Fuji system over the M43 with the 40-150 consumer lens though.
