Go to the compare sensors page on DXO mark, pick a recent FF camera and an m43 camera, and take a look at dynamic range - print. Take the manufacture ISO values instead of those marked on the graph, and compare the dynamic range in EV. You may also look at tonal and color sensitivity.

OK, so I looked at the GH1 vs. the 5D and they are almost the same from ISO 100 -ISO 1600.

How could this be? Sensor technology shouldn't matter too much if what you say is true.

Just make sure you are comparing non-noise reduced images. This usually means RaW images. Also you should equalize he resolution as higher MP files will show more pixel noise but when sampled down to equal MPs will make a better comparison.

Edit: I guess you were talking about the original 5d. Why would technology advances nt apply? Of course thy do. Sensors tech is always getting better if tech is similar, sensor size makes a difference.
