Yeah, where is that giant dynamic range difference again at ISOs 120-12800? LOL! I see about .5 stop.

It depends on how the camera is optimized, and where the priority is given. Olympus have always been blamed for noisy images, and they took great care to minimize it to absolute minimum. FF cameras on the other hand known for good tonal curve, they usually deliver very smooth gradients with very pleasing skin tones, and highlights. So even though Olympus pushed into the shadows, you can not have it both ways. For the same tech physics just do not allow it. Good enough is where it is.
