My only "lingering misconception" is that if you need to set ISO 200 on an E-M5 to get the same exposure as you would from (say) a D800 at ISO 100 with aperture and shutter speed held constant (I am using for this example the RAW files from IR, who used f/8 and 1/20s on these respective cameras), isn't "ISO performance" a rather worthless metric if taken at face value?

My sincere apologies here, Scott - I'm not trying to inundate you with responses, but I would like to follow up on this part of your reply.

Are you implying that one would "need to set ISO 200 on an E-M5 to get the same exposure as you would from (say) a D800 at ISO 100"?

I had a look at the D800 and E-M5 RAWs at IR and didn't see any evidence in them that suggests one would, indeed, need to do that. Perhaps you could clarify your intention here or else offer links to the specific files you have in mind that would illustrate the need to do this.

Thanks!
