Just testing my new X-E1 up against my OM-D E-M5 - there is no doubt that there is a huge difference in noise, more than a lot of the online test shots & samples show.
However I am finding everything to be a bit too smooth if I am honest, skin looks a bit like plastic / wet / soft. The Olympus does seem to over sharpen everything, but at least there are some fine details such as pores, or small hairs.

Take the eyebrows here for example

Not as bad but still showing a little plastic looking

Are you shooting RAW or JPEG?  If RAW, what are you using as a RAW converter. Lightroom doesn't hack it if your needs are critical. Try Capture One ExpressPro7 or PhotoNinja or one of the other 3rd party RAW converter plug-ins or stand alone products that other forum contributors recommend.

I use C1 Express Pro 7 and my images from my XPro-1 are very sharp and do not look plastic compared to my OM-D E-M5 images. Both are equally sharp.
