Dpreview wrong testing of E5 review ?

When comapring jpeg image of E-PL1/E-PL2 with E-5 at dpreview I always feel that E-5 looks less sharper than those two m4/3. In the beginning I though that it is the contrast difference. Later on I found the set up (wheel shape at the bottom right of image) may contribute the difference.

E-5 was set up with only HQ (1:4 compression?) wheras E-PL1/E-PL2 was set up with Super Fine Jpeg (1:2.7 compression?). Will this issue show the softner image of E-5 than those two m4/3? I am not sure if anyone raise this issue before since I cannot find the similar issue from search.

However, later I also found that E-5 produced the image at the size of 8.9 mb however E-PL2 has the size of 7.6 mb only. Is there anyone tell me why? Should we notify this issue to dpreview reviewer for another test of E-5 by using super fine jpeg set up?
