Most users don't realize how noisy m43 sensor are in DSLR terms because there's a lot of NR being applied to the JPEGs. But once you compare to good APS-C output in LR the rather dramatic increase in noise at base ISO is apparent. Fortunately Olympus and Panasonic has filtered what is possible through a recognition that IQ must compete with DSLRs before the platform is tractable.

You are right that there is still a difference of about one EV in base-ISO shadow noise (effectively indexed by DR) between the very best (rather than average) APS-C sensors and the current generation of MFT sensors. But if you expose optimally (ETTR), current MFT sensors are already good enough that this difference is hardly noticeable except for high-DR scenes where you have to push the shadows in PP. And for such scenes, you can often solve the problem by bracketing exposure and then merging/aligning the images in PP.

The EM1 excels against the A7 series Auto Focusing with heavy backlighting...proven...the A7r FE 55mm f/1.8 didn't even capture one photo in focus, the EM1 however had no issues at all with 42.5 Panny f/1.2...

Although I have no experience with the A7, I have no difficulties believing what you say about the E-M1 AF. I have only had a couple of days to play with my new E-M1 but I am pretty happy with what I have seen so far.
