The test itself (I haven't read it, just got the result and checked how it was conducted) was little stupid IMHO. Auto settings and best jpeg quality was ruled when image quality was compared. Other tested features were ease of use, flash, video and LCD display quality. However E-M1 was selected among all these. And this test was in respected consumer association magazine in Finland, so it should affect on buying decisions. Good work Olympus! :thumbup:

Sorry, it is in Finnish and test itself is not free. That's why I did not read (and bought) it. Test description seemed little bit simple and not so relevant for enthusiast. But can mean a lot for regular consumer looking for new camera.
