    Check out m43 rumors 43 Rumors | Blog | First RAW Olympus E-M5 files for download! who has a link to a French site with Raw samples for the OM-D. Tools like Raw Photo Processor (RPP) will open them.

    French site via Google Translate is here: http://translate.google.com/transla...act-olympus-om-d-e-m5-exemples-photos-15.html

    But the chat at 43rumors is also useful.

    I don't have a Panny camera, so I can't compare, but the high ISO shots look a great deal better than my current EPM1. Blacks seem purer, and high ISO noise is more fine and grain-like, with little chroma.

    (Don't get me wrong about the thread title: I love m/43 and still enjoy my GF1. It's a joke)

    Here's a shot I pushed +2 EV in RPP then saved as 85% jpg.

    There's some banding (maybe more like a striation effect), but it's still just Firm Ware 0.95

    I think I stripped the EXIF, but it's ISO 5,000!

    But.... who is the sensor manufacturer? :rofl:

    Thanks for the heads up on the files. I am playing around a bit in RawTherapee. It seems like they also have less noise at lower ISO.

    Whoa! 5000?! On my E-P2, 5000 iso makes every scene a snow scene.

    It's good to see some raw's!

    That's the versatility of the EP2. You get snow scenes without the need for weatherproof gear.

    Will 10000 give me infrared?

    Looks to be about a stop or stop and a half better than my e-pl2. Looks like ISO 3200 is quite usable. When they drop this sensor into the rest of the PEN line, Olympus will have another salfe from me.

    Yeah, I've seen these. Really encouraging. Looks like it may actually be some sort of new sensor, but who cares if the results are there. If I can shoot at 3200 with reasonable confidence (which I haven't been able to do with any of my m43 cams to date), I'm good. And if the shutter is actually fairly quiet, jeez, I'm in heaven!

    I loaded the ORF into Olympus viewer and then converted it to TIFF so I could use canon DPP which works faster....do you think this has done some damage?

    Well, considering that it usually takes a few months after the camera is released and on the street for the various raw converters to support it, it's not terribly shocking that it isn't supported a month or two BEFORE the camera is released...

    That is of course a good point!
    I'd like to know what others analysis of the samples comes up with. I have great expectations - and I'm looking for evidence to support the End of DSLR so I can them sell mine and buy OMD

    Not completely sure, but it would seem that at this early stage, with no official support, there could be some issues with conversion.

    This fact is enough to *almost* make me wait a couple months before purchasing the latest camera... stinks to mess with your workflow.
