Olympus 4/3rds sensors still appear to be about 0.5 stops moresensitive than APS units

    This would have to be verified by using the same lenses on the Olympus
    as the other cameras, which is difficult but not impossible, M42
    lenses used at short distance would suffice with adapters. But what
    it does mean is that the Olympus can be used at 640 ISO and the APS at
    400 ISO and the Olympus should yield the same illumination level in
    images as the APS's. Which means (effectively) that the Olympus noise
    levels are lower than they appear in like-ISO tests between it and APS
    cameras.

    At 200 ISO, if you look at the upper right shoulder of the Bailey's
    bottle, you'll see lots of dust detail in the Olympus shot, but the
    others are too dark. The Canon shot is better than the Nikon or
    Pentax shots.

    The shots were taken at different times. Different amounts of dust
    appear in the images as a result. Things get dusty over time.

    If by "stretch" you mean fact. Sure.
