No big surprise, really...

I owned the EM5 and GX1 together, and they performed about the same in Raw IQ.

Now I have the EM1 and still the GX1, and they perform about the same in Raw IQ.

No big surprise - Sony's not the only game in town when it comes to sensors.  Disappointing the long exposure noise of the EM1 is worse, but I'd imagine that it honestly affects very few people, relatively speaking.

I just shot a military retirement today with my EM1, totally satisfied.
