Olympus' latest upper-entry-level model comes with a weaker AA filter than its predecessors and as a consequence much better per-pixel detail (although there's also a certain amount of software sharpening involved). The Sony can't quite keep up on a pixel level but its higher nominal resolution means that at any 'normal' output size it is going to be virtually impossible to spot a difference in detail. Again, the color response is quite similar.
