From DxOMark conclusion:

In the lab the E-M1 achieved one of the best scores for a MFT format camera with a DxOMark Sensor score of 73 points. As you might expect from the overall score, the E-M1 achieved one of the highest Portrait scores from this size sensor with color depth of 23-bits, and a similarly impressive Landscape score (DR) score of 12.7 Evs. The Low-Light result was a little lower than expected (at 757 ISO) but it’s not too far away from the best APS-C cameras.
