I made the comparisons with APS-C, D5200 and 24mp FF, OMD is better than aps-c 24mp d5200 and on a par with a FF D600, all the way to iso 6400

This is nonsense. Whatever its strengths, my OMD doesn't get anywhere near my D700 above ISO 1600. I don't believe the D600 is so much worse than the D700 at high ISOs

From studio samples, iso 6400, d600 left, em5 right

Above, d5200 left em5 right, iso6400

I just checked with the DPR studio comparision tool. At ISO6400 the EM-5 had f6.3 1/1600s vs f8 1/2000s for the D5200. That's a whole stop worth of extra light the EM-5 got, so it's no surprise that the EM-5 can compete in high ISO at Olympus's overstated ISO.

You cant use  shutter and aperture to judge exposure in the studio scene. DPR do not ensure controlled lighting.'s gear's gear list
