even at base ISO there is a little something extra from the Fuji sensor. It comes down to more natural colour transitions (which look great on skies and skin). Paired with the stunning lenses available for the Fuji the IQ can be very, very impressive.

This is exactly my main concern - will I feel disappointed with the E-M5 images whenever I see Fuji shots?

I'm hoping that a little post-processing might go some way towards bridging any difference in colour balance, tonal transitions, etc.

I don't see it. In fact, there is less and less difference between a decent point and shoot, and a full frame camera, at lower ISO's. You need to get into regions of large dynamic range before you see it.

This weekend, I accidentally underexposed an X-E1 shoot, at a studio workshop. There was definitely NOT the same ability to pull the shadows that there is with the D600 or D800. They weren't crazy noisy, but they didn't have the color I see with the Nikons's Sony sensor.
