Unsurprisingly with the same lens, very similar sensor and the same raw converter there's not a huge difference here. But there is a difference, and that difference is down to Olympus's decision to use a slightly lighter anti alias filter on the sensor, producing better resolution and visibly crisper pixel level sharpness. You won't see it in most normal prints, but for big enlargements of detailed scenery (with a good lens) you will undoubtedly appreciate that little extra textural detail.
