Even as good as FF images are, the OM-D at 1/4 the ISO will always look better.

it is a typical wishful thinking of those who like to compare deep shadows w/ Canon FF's @ low iso's (where Canon does not deliver)... but move to SNR @ midtones, real high ISO and start counting Sony/Nikon and suddenly everything is going back to there is no replacement for displacement (= how much light you can grab).

At high ISOs, which is what the OP was talking about, the E-M5 set at two stops lower ISO than the FF camera (for equal DoF), will go equal for SNR at midtones but do better with regard to shadow noise/DR in comparison with all current FF cameras except the D4 (where it will be a tie).

it is soundly beaten by DR @ high ISO even by Canon (1Dx).
