The EM-5 RAW are systematically underxposed by 2EV compared to the GH2 RAW.

Actually, according to RAWDigger, it's actually the Green Channel which is underexposed. The Red Channel is similar.

That explains the ability to recover - apparenty - burnt highlights easily with RAW files.

In real life use, it's no worries. The Jpegs are great, and the RAW have a lot of latitude to work with.

That's a smart trick, IMHO, but it's a trick At least, it won't affect the majority of OM-D users, but it's always nice to learn how your camera work


Perhaps Oly should add more latitude, and go for -3 EV under-exposure in RAWs. Why stop at -2 ?

Sure, why not. Isn't highlight 'headroom' supposed to be a good thing?
