I'm willing to go with Willing on this one.

Looks like the subject 'flash unit' is not really in focus in image1 and image3 and image1 could have a little back focus problem and could have made less background blur than full frame at f2.8!!

The flash head on the Micro Four Thirds shot has slight red CA suggesting it is slightly back focused. That puts the focus point closer to the background and so the background will blur less.
