E-M5 RAW comparison samples?

    Now that there's finally a good 3rd party RAW converter with E-M5 support (Corel Aftershot Pro), I was hoping to get a better handle on how the E-M5 performs in terms of noise vis a vis the 16MP Panasonics, 12MP Pens, and 16MP APS-C cameras.

    Unfortunately, I've only found two reasonably complete sets of RAW files. The ones posted by DPReview look okay, but lighting was apparently not constant across different samples, and that could be affecting noise. Ian Burley of fourthirds-user.com has also posted a high ISO comparison set of RAWs, but the Olympus samples were shot with the kit 12-50 and appear substantially softer (at all ISOs) than the Panasonic or Sony ones, making it hard to fairly compare.

    Anybody know of other sources? Thanks,
