    This time its from Fourthirds-User. I am getting more and more impressed with the image quality. Even 6400 in decent lighting can be usable (broken airplane), although in dim light, it's a little blotchy (skateboarders)

    "I set the camera to record Large Super Fine JPEG and RAW files simultaneously. The JPEGs were recorded with the Standard mode noise filter set. Please note that as the camera did not have final firmware Olympus requested that we only reproduce the shots at 1600x1200 resolution. So no RAW files for you this time either. No other tonal or colour adjustments have been made. Only a copyright watermark and resize sharpening have been applied to these sample images. Olympus says that image quality is likely to be better when the E-M5 starts to ship with version 1.00 firmware in April. All shots taken with the m.Zuiko 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3 standard zoom unless indicated otherwise."

    I like the camera but I don't think I could pull off that trench coat look:biggrin: I was amazed at the shot right at the bottom at 12800. I could see noise but that shot filled my 19 inch monitor and still looked pretty good.

    Then again, you wouldn't really USE 6400 in decent lighting! But I find the skateboarders in low light more than adequate at 6400. It looks like I'll be able to shoot well at 3200 and well enough at 6400 and that's waaaay beyond expectations. I think the NR that's happening at both the raw level and in jpegs is getting better and better. I've seen some raw examples that continue to suggest this is still more or less the same processer thats in the G3/GX1, so it might just be the processing built into the camera. And I'm getting more and more ok with that. I shoot the X100 in jpeg partly because I could never match the NR that Fuji achieves with its processing with a PP NR program. And it looks like Oly (and others) might be learning the same tricks because all of the OMD jpegs I've seen have been very good at everything more realistic than pixel peeping levels. These are good times to be into this stuff.
