This is exactly what we have said is a common misconception. Bigger sensors are better, but only if they have as good (fast + coating quality)) a lens as the smaller sensor camera.

For example: my LX5 takes night pictures at 400 iso, an APS-C with slow kit lens will use 1600 iso for the same scene. Noise? About equal.

Maybe noise might be similar...but you will still have more DOF and much, much less dynamic range.  An APSC sensor will be able to pull more detail from shadows or highlights.
