... 20 m4/3 pictures within the range where m4/3 can achieve an equivalent exposure to the FF camera? I don't see why there would be any different. 20 m4/3 pictures in dim light where the camera is getting noticeably noisy and 1 clean FF picture? You'd probably be able to pick it out.

OK so ISO 12800 is where you draw the line.

If you're taking a noticeably noisy (or less detailed) shot and comparing it to a clean shot then you'd probably see it if the print is large enough. If all the shots are fine, then they're fine. There's no "line."*

* ) From what I can see, the OM-D is getting noticeably noisier (or less detailed, your choice) by ISO 3200 or 6400 compared to the top FF cameras. You don't need to wait until ISO 12800 to see any difference.

What body are you comparing? Here is the OMD versus the 5D MK II to be honest I wouldn't use either past ISO 3200. I'd give the 5D MK II a 1 stop advantage at ISO 6400.
