You`ll need to shoot RAW and use a decent converter like Capture one but it`ll beat the OMD for detail, DR and high ISOs by quite a margin.

Hmmm, I don't think so. DXOmark score the OMD higher and it's a stop better at base ISO on dynamic range. This pretty much matches my experience of both these cameras. The OMD has better highlight recovery for sure in it's raw files. These two are very close but the OMD sensor is better, no doubt in my mind and I do own and use the EOS-M. Canon need to improve the dynamic range on their sensors though they are good for other things, such as detail and colour IMHO.

the JPG engine sadly is typical canon APS-C - loaded with unnecessary detail killing NR at base ISO (amazingly it`s actually quite rational at high ISOs when turned to LOWest) .. if you`re a Staunch JPG only shooter who runs from RAW files as fast as possible them from what I`ve seen the OMD will beat it easily and be the better bet, at lower ISOs anyway . I really wish that Canon and Sony would STOP loading their low ISO JPGs with NR , the Canon site 70D samples are even worse than the M or 550/600/650D for it .
