EM1 at 1600 ISO, is this to be expected?

I just tried my EM1 in real low light outside and must say I am a little disappointed with the way the sky came out with the noise I see even without magnifying at all.

Are my expectations too high? Would I need a FF camera to have better result or am I doing something wrong with the camera? P Mode, ISO 1600.

Love the camera otherwise and the EVF is beautiful the way it lets me see what I will get rather than guessing. I adjusted the exposure to get the sky at the exact color as I saw it and color and brightness wise it came very very close.
