Sounds like the aforementioned E-M5 is worth a look, as is the NEX6. Both would seem to meet on pretty much all needs. Sony NEX peaking is probably about the best out there, with adjustable strength and color to suit needs.
And just to confirm, there's no limit on Bulb mode on Sony NEX or Alpha cameras.
