    I have had my little E-PL5 for a week now. I just got the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 and couldn't wait to try it out. I have always tried to limit the ISO to a maximum of 1600, but decided to let it fly for this shot. This is the raw pic converted to jpg, only adjustment was applying the unsharp filter in PS. I am very impressed with how it handled the high ISO. Not to mention, I love this little lens! My only complaint is that I should have shot it at a smaller aperture so I could get his nose in focus too. I was so intent on the eyes.

    When the scene is reasonably well lit, the noise can be pretty good, as can be seen in your image. I find the noise gets more noiceable and distracting in darker scenes or darker areas of a image.

    Nice shot...these cameras continuously impress me with their low-light abilities. If you've been shooting digital for a while (I've been shooting it for about a decade), you'll remember when having clean ISO 1600 was an incredible feat...now, a tiny little camera can pull off ISO 6400 as cleanly as ISO 1600 was a few years ago, and we were happy as monkeys in a crate of bananas about it!

    I actually like the nose OOF while the eyes are in focus...different perspective. I think given its ISO6400 it is a wow moment. I had this moment with my EM5 and constantly shoot sports in ISO3200 indoors. Rarely are these photos every blown up beyond 11X14 so it works.

    The E-PL5 is a much under-appreciated camera IMHO. I know I love mine. It goes pretty well everywhere with me in a little bag along with the 45, the 9-18 and either the Sammy 7.5 fisheye or the 17/1.8.

    I agree. If reasonably lit and properly exposed high iso with the E-M5, E-P5, E-PL5, E-PM2 are pretty good.
