So, under certain circumstances E-M1 is "less good" than E-M5, but even then, the E-M1 is as good or better than most other cameras. The EM5 is outstanding in this regard but we did not notice yet ...

Does anyone know what changed to cause this? It seems strange, since they are both 16MP sensors. I can't imagine Olympus using an inferior sensor in their flagship model, and newer sensors are usually better. Did Olympus tweak the M1 to improve low ISO performance at the expense of high ISO performance? I see that the M5 has a min ISO of 200, and the M1 has a min ISO of 100...
