OM-D E-M5 Better IQ than Nikon D4

What are we supposed to make of DPReview's recent studio images for the OM-D E-M5? They look great, sure. But they look too good. At least when pixel peeping on a monitor, in a side-by-side at low ISO, the OM-D E-M5 looks sharper and with better color rendition than the Nikon D3, the Nikon D4, and most astonishingly, the Pentax 645D. (The last might be explained by the greater magnification of the sample, but this is not an explanation for the others.) This is literally too good to be true, isn't it? Would prints show the true differences? Or are these test shots just suspect?
