Should I get a Fuji X-T1?

I have just decided to sell my DSLR full frame equipment.

It's simply to big and inconvenient for my kind of shooting.

With that, I should get some money to get new toys. 

I am now back to playing with my Olympus OMD EM-5, which I think is a great camera. I was planning to add a Oly 12-40 2.8 to my lens collection. A faster zoom in the midrange would be very useful to me.

However, what I got to notice is that a fuji X-T1 with the kit lens wouldn't be much bigger than the em-5 with the 12-40 2.8. And the fuji kit, with apertures from 2.8 to 4.0, with the Aps-c sensor would give me a shallower Dof. And there are very tempting lenses in the fuji line, like the 23 1.4, 35 1.4 and 56 1.2.

Also read about the great EVF of the X-T1 and the bigger sensor should give a slightly better quality (or not?).

Anyone familiar with m43 system and the X-T1?

What are the pros and cons you see?

One thing I'd miss in the EM-5 is the excellent in camera stabilization.
