    OK, so just for kicks and giggles I used DPReview's comparometer, comparing the E-M5 RAW against the SD1, D800, and GH2: Sigma SD1 / SD1 Merrill In-depth Review: Digital Photography Review

    Surprisingly, to my eyes, the D800, E-M5, and GH2 have just about the same level of detail, with the E-M5 having a better time resolving color resolution. The SD1 has visibly better detail, but for the price the E-M5 isn't bad at all, and IMO a better system camera. Can't wait for mine.

    Whoa, the Foveon sensor is a disaster at high ISO. The Sony 24MP unit isn't looking great either...
