Aren't ISO's below 200 for Olympus "fake" anyway?


No gain in noise control either?

There is an improvement in noise, as ISO 100 will result in half the shutter speed or one stop wider aperture over ISO 200, but it does increase the chance/severity of blown highlights.

You could achieve the effect with an ND filter.

Actually, you can't.  If you use an ND filter, the camera will either use a lower shutter speed or wider aperture to compensate, whereas ISO 100 simply overexposes ISO 200 by one stop.
