Sweet! I was planning to have some 20x24 prints made and was wondering if my mu4/3 images would be okay or if I needed to use FF files.
These are all with my E-M5. With that camera, I wouldn't worry about print anything that's ISO400 or lower. If my exposure is dead on I could probably get away with ISO 800, but I've never tried. Most of my work is landscape, so I'm nearly always at base ISO.
Thanks for the tip about ISO, I'll definately check that before I send my file(s) to the printer. Anything that I'm going to have printed from mu4/3 will be from my EM-5, I also shoot mostly landscape and prefer base ISO (or as close as possible).
If you want to do a trial run, I use shortrunposters.com just to get a preliminary idea of how things will look. You can get a 18x24mm for $3+shipping. It's a nice way to preview noise characteristics...though it's more or less useless for things like color accuracy. Still, its a cheap simple way to get drafts of large prints a head of time, particularly if you want to compare how different processing approaches look on the same image.
