I dont argue about portability of Olympus. But it's just pretty much useless in bad light.

So, I would ask, If You leave take Olympus with you, due to small size and portability, spend energy on shooting and there is no outcome...

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 sensright

I disagree. I have shot landscapes at 1600 and 3200 ISO with my a99 and my OMD E-M5 can't touch that high in an actual print. Large prints with my E-M5, 32x24 are really not good even at 1600 ISO. The usable limit for a nice quality print with OMD seems to be 800iso. Its more like 2 to 2 1/2 stops.

The new Sony sensor in the OMD is actually old Sony technology and any compact out there is better. Its probably on par with the NEX5. Plus the E-M1 is not going to have a new sensor in it. It's behind the eight ball before its even released.
