I don't consider them good enough or I'd have one. I would not buy a Fuji or Sony, at least, not yet. A camera for me is only part of a complete system, which includes hardware, software, and support. All three need to be top notch for me to buy in.
I can agree about support likely being an issue, these are all, so far, fairly small players in this segment.
FWIW, my Fuji XT1 light leak issue was repaired and back to me in just over a week, slow shipping included. No experience or need with the other ML yet.
If you need more lenses, Fuji's got you pretty well covered already, MFT lenses are plentiful and Oly has some really nice pro ones in the pipe. sony... well, there's lots of adapters.
Software... what you need? Everything's covered well enough right now, tho it may require a workflow mod with is too tedious a change for some users. I can use jpgs from the Fuji for most things, Oly raw I run thru DNG converter and use with LR3.
Flashes... 3rd party for Fuji if you need big stuff, otherwise their little ones are fairly effective for light (oops, pun) work. I haven't looked at the Oly or Panasonic lineup. Since I mostly shoot outdoors or natural light this is of little importance. When I shoot with lights it's full manual, so I'm using a Canon flash on my Olympus, works fine.
So it's all already here to a good extent, but perhaps not enough for a working pro in some ways.
And, here's SOME WISDOM FROM THE ELDERS.

it's not too visual, can listen to it in the background for the most part
