Re: Sylus 1 much lower IQ than PL5/PM2 with 40-150mm

So as of now I have an E-PL5 with four lenses:
Panasonic 14-42mm f3.5-5.6
Olympus 40-150mm f4-5.6
Olympus 45mm f1.8
Panasonic Leica Summilux 25mm f1.4

What appeals to me about the Stylus 1 (at least in theory) is the constant f2.8 zoom that can even be extended using a teleconverter without sacrificing aperture.

This sounds tremendous for sports action and birding. But with the smaller sensor, do I lose all of that aperture advantage due to ISO limitations? I just don't want to think about buying the Panasonic 35-100mm f2.8 or the Only 45-150mm f2.8 when it comes out.

If the Stylus 1 is "good enough" in terms of high ISO performance and bokeh, I might be able to live with f2.8 instead of f1.4 at the wide not having to change lenses! Handheld night street photography is something I also do a lot, but I'm not sure if the Stylus 1 could handle it given the smaller sensor and the f2.8 aperture.
