By way of comparison the G5 has a dynamic range of 11.6 compared to 10.6 evs on the older m4/3 sensor and only 0.7 evfs less than the EM5 which is only 7% better by my math.

Seems that we have been blowing this EVF thing or advantage way out of proportion, first it was the MP thing, then noise, then high ISO, and now evs? With good HDR programs available with many cameras now makes these evs advantages much less relevant. Do you really think rationally that a 7% increase in evs is a huge advantage as most are claiming? By overemphasizing the dynamic range we are in effect brainwashing others into believing these new cameras are "much better" than the ones they currently use and enjoy.
