I still don't get this NEX superior sensor stuff

Of course, DR and high ISO performance is a given benefit with these new Sony APS sensors

I agree about the superiority of the Sony sensors in some DSLRs, eg. the Nikon 5100 (where a different read-out tech is being used), but for the NEX 5 I don't see any significant difference. Neither at DXO:

nor here at DPR (substituting for the Fuji):


I'm wondering, where do you see any significant difference between the GH2 and the NEX 5 (below ISO 6400)?
