...this is a fact , anyone knows it. No Panasonic, no other Olympus, nothing.

OM-D with a 20mm pancake is unbeatable both in terms of performance/IQ and unobtrusiveness/'pocketability' of the setup (even with kit flash mounted.)

So I have a question on that: While it seems an established fact that OM-D is above all other MFT bodies for high ISO, just how large is the advantage?

I don't have the software and skills to analyze available test images in depths; eyeballing the images here on DPR it seems to me the OM-D has maybe 0.5 - 1 stop on the GX1. Does that seem right?
