If you're absolutely unwilling to compromise on image quality then spending twice the money and moving up to the bulk of a full-frame is the only way of gaining a significant step up from the E-M5.
I think this is a key comment:Anyone know how to interpret the Dynamic Range graphs? I am trying to figure out how it would compare to, for example, a Pentax K5. The curves look pretty close to me, but so does pretty much anything I plug in.
Olympus acted similarly with E-P3 also. So we'll see when the dxo mark score comes out.The camera is built around a 16MP Four Thirds sensor, which all out testing suggests may well be the same one seen in Panasonic's DMC-G3.
I think this is a key comment:
"...a more gentle tone curve that offers greater dynamic range..."
True, it *could* very well be a Panasonic sensor, but there would seem to be plenty of proprietary bits outside of the sensor that impact overall IQ. For example, what Fuji is able to extract out of their outside-sourced sensors.I haven't read all the details much but dpr wrote:

That's an interesting claim for them to make. While it's clear that it's a well designed camera, with great specifications and image quality, a claim like that requires, at least to my mind, some qualification of what they mean by significant.Yeah, I pre-ordered back in February. But canceled. Just put in another order last week, but doubt I'll see one any time soon.
Here's the spoiler now
