I don't disagree that it's not ideal for action but to dismiss it outright is a misjudgement. It is possible to use an OM-D for action and get good results.

And macro...not at problem at all

An example


There are two excellent native macro lenses in Oly 60 mm f/2.8 and Panny f/2.8 45 mm plus you can hook up pretty much what you like, the 50 f/2 or Sigma 150 f/2.8 plus an array of manual lenses.

Which brings me on to wildlife.. again with an adapter and a good old manual lens

BIF is more more a challenge agreed but again not impossible, there are some very nice examples recently by Brian1208 on this forum.
Had to just express my admiration of these incredible shots......... really inspiring.

Even E-5 has good enough DR and is possible to overexpose with +1....+1.5 without burning some areas of the picture.
I guess E-M5 is a bit better. No problem at all to overexpose with +1...+1.5.

So problem solved.
For coping with high contrast lighting, yes, I agree (although I prefer to use the expose to the right technique rather than risk truly unrecoverable highlights) but I wouldn't advocate deliberately over exposing just to achieve the equivalent of a lower ISO.

Re: E7 and E-M7 rumours

Want ISO 25 not 100 so I can slow the shutter down with my lenses with no filter threads.

Since I bought a Canon 7D and EF400mm f5.6 for BIF I have started using this lens on the E-M5. It really shows just how good the sensor is and just how good the lens is. MF is a delight for static subjects using the magnified EVF and has encouraged me to try other make lenses using MF.
I actually get more keepers using MF than the E-M5 AF especially for wildlife.

It's little wonder the general public come to associate "professional photographers" with this type of equipment and to form the erronious opinion that in photography ... "size matters".

As we in this forum all appreciate, the only thing that should concern the general public (clients) is the quality of the end product and not the equipment used to obtain it.

Rant over

Just so that I'm not being misunderstood, I wasn't meaning to belittle m4/3 and agree that it is a misconception. I was merely pointing out an observation.

Cheers.
