E-PL5 now supported in LR and ACR
6 months ago
As reported on DPR front page - there are new release candidate versions of LR and ACR that support E-PL5 raws.
My initial testing indicates they come out quite nice in LR, as expected, but that the JPEG engine is actually surprisingly close to raws from LR when it comes to resolution. Also, the NR algorithms at work in the JPEG engine strike a nice balance between NR and detail retention. Playing around with the NR sliders in LR or PP NR via Topaz Denoise I can't do a lot better than the OOC JPEGs, which is interesting. Sure, I can mask to my heart's content and retain a bit of extra detail in key areas if I want to put the time into doing that, but in general Oly did a great job with even high ISO JPEGs.
Any news on the "no AA filter" rumour started by 4/3 rumors? My initial look at low ISO shots in raw suggest there might be some truth in it as they are bitingly sharp
