E-M10 & X-T1 in poor light

I had the opportunity to play with a Fuji X-T1 for a day or two and did some totally non-scientific comparisons with my E-M10.

One of the things that I tried was to get some idea how they compare in poor light at reasonably high ISO's. I took some shots in a very dimly lit room with the following settings:

RAW,  ISO 6400, aperture = f/5.6, s/speed = 1/8sec

Both cameras were on a tripod and I switched off all noise reduction and sharpening was left to default.

The lens on the XT-1 was the XF 23mm f1.4 prime, on the E-M10 I had the kit 14-42 IIR.

Absolutely no post processing was done to the images, I merely converted to jpeg, made 100% crops and combined the images into one pic.

I also did some tests at ISO's up to 25 600, but since the X-T1 does not render RAW images at ISO's higher than 6400, those were all done in jpeg.

I thought the E-M10 stood up pretty well to the larger-sensored X-T1.
