it doesn't have a base ISO of 100 like the NEX sensors. Since that (and the further improvement in DR) would presumably be good selling points, one wonders why.

Probably Olympus is still doing the underexpose-and-push-in-post approach that they've been doing since the E-30. That makes highlights more recoverable at the expense of shadow noise, but with the Sony sensor the shadow noise should be much less of an issue.
