Reviewing the Cameralab Raw images compared between EM1, EM5 and Panasonic GX1, the results are identical to me.

http://cameralabs.com/reviews/Olympus_OMD_EM1/RAW_noise.shtml

Cameralab states that the results are good but they kind of hoped for some improvement in a year-and-a-half since EM5's release. Perhaps m43 sensor hit the maximum in terms of image quality, with today's technology. The only improvements in image quality might come in jpeg, depending on how great Olympus programmers are, since it is all about the algorithm at this point.

thus, any of these cameras would be fine if image quality is the only factor.
