    Wow, can't believe how good it is. JPEG, straight from camera (only resized in photoshop) ISO 6400, 5.6 1/30 second with 14-42 kit lens.

    Second shot is 12,800 and third is the same shot with a 100% view on the book from Aperture (text is very easy to read).

    These are jpegs as Oly delivered, nothing done to them. Cannot wait for RAW support.

    I was a newspaper photographer for 25 years until I switched careers 1.5 years ago. Pixel peepers will look and see the noise/artifacts, etc .. that are there (yes, I see it too) but damn, film never could do this (at least film I had access too:wink:.

    The technology is simply amazing and gives us, as photographers, windows to the world that we could never have opened without it. I wouldn't hesitate to use 12,800 and this camera for the newspaper if I was still working there.

    ISO 2500 raw converted from Lightroom release candidate. Imported into Aperture to get the frame grab. The only change made was white balance.

    Wow, looking good. Seems like it's finally safe to shoot above ISO 800!

    My E-M5 arrived Thursday afternoon and it was dark and rainy by the time I charged up the battery a bit.
    I upgraded to the E-M5 for improvements in high ISO and stabilization, so snapped a few indoor shots as a quick test.
    Room shades were drawn, lights were off, and it was too dim for me to see these items clearly.
    I was really surprised by how well the shots came out.
    These shots are noticeably brighter than how I saw the scene.


    The shots below were at 3200 ISO, stabilized, 45/1.8 lens, SS of 1/5 and 1/6, and apertures of f/2.2 except for the last shot at f/3.5.
    Jpgs with minor levels corrections and a small dose of sharpening.

    p439823954.

    p165458353.

    p23733805.

    I hadn't read the manual and set up the camera, so there's potential for further improvement as I become less ignorant.
    Very, very happy at this time. :smile:
