Absolutely, I fully expect my 5D2 to be surpassed in time by m4/3's cameras in terms of performance, it's inevitable.

If by that you mean noise at the same ISO (exposure), and if you believe sensorgen, that will never happen. The m43 sensor has to have QE=132%, which is a bit over the top.

M4/3's sensors will become increasingly more efficient so that there will come a point where the visible differences between the latest m4/3's sensor and the old sensor on the Canon 5D2 will be minimal to the point of not being an issue for pretty much anyone, for some they are already there (not for me I might add).
