There have been a few tests comparing this.

One I remember, current M4/3 sensor (E-PL5 IIRC) vs D800 at ISO1600/6400 - D800 was obviously noisier (At the full picture level, not at 100%, where it's obviously going to be noisier).

However, I would expect the D4 to be essentially identical to the E-PL5 under those circumstances.

I'm afraid I don't have time to find links right now.

Thinking about it more, the high ISO situations are not really relevant IMO. I'm trying to think of situations where you'd be shooting at a high ISO, but need both deep DoF AND a fast shutter speed.

Shooting shooting stars might qualify
