I used to have the Olympus E-510. My Nikon D90 felt completely alien and huge when I first got it and I felt like the buttons were in all the wrong place. There were also a lot more of them too lol. Now I'm completely used to it. From the first photograph I took, I could immediately see the improvement in image quality over the Olympus, which in comparison looked grainy and noisey. Personally, I wouldn't be put off if a camera doesn't immediately feel right in your hands. You will adapt and before long will become second nature to you. I'd be more concerned with its performance and features and how they will impact upon my photography.
Although I enjoyed using all the old glass on the 4/3 system, I did find that the crop factor was a bit of an issue, mainly for wide angle shots. If it were me, I'd look to sell all the Olympus gear and go for a complete change of system. I'd also look more towards the full frame sensors, mainly for the lack of crop factor and superior low noise capabilities.
Had a play with the Canon 5D MKII with the 16-35mm f/2.8 USM II, which is being used for music video making. All I can say is wow! You get very professional looking results straight out of the camera. I definitely won't be disappointed with one of those or a D700. I know I wouldn't be lol.
