    Used to have e-pm1, ibis turned off, anti shock on to 1/8. Any other settings/stuff to know for the e-pm2? I really wanted to want a used em5 but I needed something small and inexpensive.

    Did you enable Super Control Panel?

    This page was indispensable when I first got into m4/3, the comments are mostly about the PL-1/5 but apply to pretty much every camera around the same generation (E-M5, E-P5, PM-2, etc).

    Set your max auto-ISO much higher, I let mine do 6400

    super control panel is on.

    I set the max iso to 1600 on my e-pm1. About what would that be equal to on a e-pm2?

    That would equal 1600. What's the question again?
    My e-pM2 makes RAW files with less unpleasant noise at ISO6400 than my e-pM1 does at ISO1600,
    although that's from memory I'm happy to check again.
