I see you have cropped the E-M1 pictures into 3:2, this makes the crop factor more like 2.1 and should give less background blur. If you would have cropped the D700 to 4:3 the crop factor would have been more like 1.85 and the E-M1 picture should have had more background blur. Focus has to be exactly on the same spot of course.
