I'm not surprised for one reason

I still have my E410 - the sensor is not even in the same ballpark with the EM5 (or even my E30) with respect to high ISO or dynamic range or resolution.  It was pretty much a base ISO camera and even then had lots of faults and frustrations, including a crooked viewfinder.

But, there was a great clarity to the color and contrast with that camera/sensor, including real blacks and real whites and real contrast.  That clarity got lost with the obsession over blown highlights, blocked shadows and high ISO shooting. (Yes, I know you can bring that back with processing and the reverse is not true.)

It never was a camera for pixel peepers but regular folks who just look at an image and react, rather than scrutinize for faults.  Especially for jpg shooters.  It had native 'pop', so to speak.
