    The review of the EP5 on imaging resources said the digital teleconverter crops the sensor but dpreview said the EP3 just resamples the center. Did Olympus change the implementation of this feature since the last model? Can anyone confirm if the digital teleconverter crops or scales in movie mode?

    Perhaps someone can provide original mov files of a same shot with DTC on and off, then I can compare for myself. Thanks!

    There is 2 mode in E-P5, the normal digital converter mode (2x) that resample the center and the new magnify mode (4x) that available only in movie mode that allows you to crop anywhere on the screen

    Here is the magnify mode sample
