You make very good comparisons for what you had to work with in public.

There are two shots where the noise looks better on the E-M1 to me. Otherwise the noise is better on the Sony. The EM-1, against logic, seems to have more detail in a couple of the pictures.

I do agree with the colors on the OMD series. The reds are too saturated and become "orange", losing detail. Since I shoot JPG I set the saturation -1 and the same for sharpness. I try to leave the camera on a specific white balance (depending on the light) then if I need to I change the whole group in Aperture. Though Oly's WB is pretty good, some lights just throw it off with their flicker of different colors.

Output on both cameras look like winners.
