The "high ISO performance" is irrelevant, what is important is the low light performance. Oly has different ISO rating and exposure algorithms. If you compare the same exposure, not the same ISO, you will see that the Oly is about 2 stops behind, as it should be, and as measured by DXO.

I would love to see 100% crops of images you got with your 300mm m43 lens. What I have seen so far looks not so great.
