Probably color depth.  According to DXOMark, a 5DMKII produces 23.7bits of color depth, while a E-P5 produces 22.8bits.  That's approximately twice the number of fine gradations between colors.  The typical non-specialist display/adapter is capable of taking a 24-bit color depth signal and depicting that to whatever color space it is capable of.  Better displays/adapters can render a whopping 30bits.  Remember that the number of gradations doubles with every bit.

I knew an a-hole at my gym that runs a Phase 1 MF digital back, and WOW were his shots RICH.
