It's easy to check dpreview reviews to see that there is no camera, no matter how expensive, that wouldn't have a noticeable noise, especially in blue range, when looked at 100% crops, even at lowest ISO. That's not a problem, because noise reduction and size reduction take care of it.

You're welcome to believe what you believe. I've shot with both cameras. I've compared them side-by-side. The full-frame shots are genuinely clean. The E-PM1 ones are anything but. I'd guess the difference with DPR is that they shoot in studio lighting, not typical outdoor conditions.

No, no, you got it all wrong. You are welcome to believe whatever you like and do whatever tests necessary to strengthen your faith. The DPR testing is done in controlled environment, pretty well at that.

Sure, and if I did my photography indoors under studio lighting, then the I'd be seeing the same results. I don't and I'm not.
