That is complete hyperbole.

The A99 has a 1 stop gain in ISO performance over the OMD. 1 stop. The OMD is on par with all of the current APS-C Sony SLTs. Are those useless in bad light as well?

Have you ever actually used the OMD (or any of the current gen pens with the new Sony sensor)?

The OMD is certainly not useless in low light but I have used the OMD and the A77 and they were roughly the same in low light performance. The A99 is significantly better and it is more than a 1 stop difference but less than 2 in my experience.   I think there will be less than a 1 stop difference between the E-M1 and the A99.
