Shadow noise OM-D vs 5D mkII
May 1, 2012

Here small shadow noise comparison I made with my OM-D and 5D mkII. Its not scientific in any means but rather quick practical test with the latest Light Room. Both images pushed +5EV.

Some people will bash OM-D by its sensor size only, so I think its good to make some real life tests side by side. I'm surprised how much nicer OM-D noise looks without any additional noise reduction software. The gridded noise plagues the poor old 5D mkII.

5D mkII:

OM-D:

Please note: focus, color temperature or focal length does not exactly match. Macro lens was used for Canon.
