Sergie: according to what you've posted, the E-1 ... with "only" 5MP and rather large photo sites ... should then have outperformed the competition in the noise and DR departments, but it didn't and doesn't. How come?

Oh, come on, that's a cheap one...
It is clear that the above is only true in an "all other things being equal" context, which implies sensors of sorta kinda the same generation. And same technology, which is why the whole photosite size story can be correct most of the time but by no means universal.
