Really this strike me as a case of someone desperately trying to poorve a point using little or no sharpening on the D800 shot and massive amounts of sharpening on the EM-5 shot.

The result is masses of artifacts on the latter (including a horrible looking sky that really didnt need to be sharpened) and still ultimately a real lack of detail compaired to the D800.

I'm sure the EM-5 used properly provides enough resolution for most people but if I was looking to print these at say 30 by 20 inches believe me the difference would be clear.

Believe me the difference wouldnt be see in a 40ftx20ft poster and looked at from 12 inches. It strikes me that em5 upscaled to 24mp is equal to any 24MP aps-c camera and FF camera, at 37mp the 24mp aps-c upscaled cant compete with the em5, but the d800 seems better, I said as much. Ultimately I am amazed at how good the em5 c/w 36mp FF, in fact astonished.
