Look at the JPEG sizes; check RAW images

I don't have a dog in this fight, but I would suggest comparing the JPEG sizes. The Oly ones are two-thirds bigger, suggesting that the X100 images from a bigger sensor have been squashed down quite a bit more with resultant quality loss.

So I would suggest that a real comparison should be between RAW files.

Having said that, I am attracted to the notion of the first respondent's E-P1 with the 17 (or Panny 14) lens and matching accessory viewfinder. Very expensive, though. I wouldn't give you tuppence for the E-P1 without an accessory viewfinder; its LCD isn't up to much.

Cheers, geoff
