The only method I use is one that maximizes captured light given artistic constraints. Assume that they are set at f/6.3 and 1/800s for the reasons of the example in my post just above.

Process - Import as raw and export as jpeg from Aperture, downsize OM_D to E520.

Note: As expected by the ISO standard, equal exposure + equal ISO = equal final image brightness.

Seems to me that if one camera has, for example, 1 stop more highlight headroom, all you're doing is jacking up the rest of the image 1 stop.
