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.

At 30 by 20 your at about 150dpi.

You'll need to print bigger than that.
