Olympus kit is a great tool to use for street photography. In particular, the OM-D and PEN ranges, along with the Stylus 1 will be ideal for street photography use, and here's why:

Compact - All PEN and OM-D cameras, along with the Stylus 1, are extremely compact, and in the case of the OM-D E-M10, extremely pocketable, meaning they can be easily stowed away and drawn out when you want to capture an image.

Wide range of lenses - OM-D and PEN cameras have a wide range of MFT lenses available for them, which means you can choose the one most ideal for your street photography. A lens such as the 18-180mm lens will be ideal if you want to travel light, as you'll have a wide zoom range to work with. Wides are also good for street photography as you can capture subjects in frame without them realising they're actually in your shot. 

Lightweight - Olympus' range of MFT OM-D and PEN cameras, along with the Stylus 1, are lightweight, meaning you can carry them around on a day out in the town or city with no problems concerning sore shoulders as the camera will easily fit into your day bag.

Lots of image filters - Both the PEN and OM-D cameras feature a wide range of built-in image filters, enabling you to personalise your images to the situation in hand. This will minimise the need for post processing, and enable you to visualise the scene in live view before you even take the photo.

Tilting screens help with shooting from the hip - If you want to shoot inconspicuously, the tilting screen on some OM-D models will enable you to see what you're shooting while shooting from the hip.
