    Thanks to Amin, I got a confirmation that the EP-3 does noise reduction independently of what you have configured the camera with:

    But I am still surprised at the unimpressive jpeg output (low light) that the camera gives even at ISO400 :confused:. My previous pictures were at ISO 800 and over. I was hopefull that the problem would not be as bad for lower ISOs.

    I have included two JPEGS. One out of camera and resized. The other one processed by Lightroom from RAW (default installation's sharpening and noise reduction) + resized.

    I'm not taking any chances anymore, I always shoot RAW in low light.
