Update: flickr set with plus 1, 2, 3 EV images

I finally managed to finish my own small test of raising EV and/or using fill light on those images. If interested, you can find the results (including exif data) in a set here on flickr: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjEuLLM2

The motivation for me was to find out how much more lattitude regarding noise and shadow detail a D800 will give over the E-M5 when shot at base ISO. I rarely use higher ISOs for images i plan to pp but unfortunately most comparisons only look at higher ISOs and ignore heavy base iso raw tweaking.

The results are roughly what i expected but it was nice to see that my initial expectations were confirmed. The E-M5 will do nicely for what i need and the D800 is simply amazing.
