Shot the EM5 and K-5 last weekend side to side on a back lit subject and the K-5 clearly had more shadow detail, tonal range and DR.

You have to use a real world subject and also a current version of the RAW converter. The EM5 does not match the DR, tonality and high ISO of the K-5.

(and I say this, not saying the EM5 is bad or such. I think the EM5 is pretty good).

just like you said it had no better performance than GX1

really you could be right or wrong, but nobody should care for more than a second what you think...
