The e-5 Jpeg experiment.

Given the e-5 sensor has the sane characteristics of the pen sensor ( that's what? Almost two years old?), given Olympus fantastic jpeg engine and further no doubt improved jpeg engine I want to see how many raw shooters looking at the e-5 may defend the camera quality comparing jpegs to other brand or even make a jpeg switch, mostly to justify their camera.

The only real benefit for raw shooters here is the weaker AA but now you will have to deal with color Moire. Most non Olympus converters Won't do that with the same sophistication Olympus does and btw the conversion times now almost triplicate due to the heavy duty color moire removal your computer now has to do (read workflow clog- if you don't believe this try converting a pen raw file). Oh and you lose any further Ilympus R&D in making the output special. Now you have the IQ of a pen.

makes a good photograph.'
