Thanks Brent. Gives me a glimmer of hope. How far can you push the Olympus with regard to low light and print enlargement?. Would you get a decent 20 x16 print or is that asking too much?.

Thanks.

RTF,

I haven't done any 16 X 20 prints from the E-M5. I've printed significant crops on 11 X 14 and 8 X 10 and they have been fine.

The E-M5 falls behind in low light high iso work relative to the D3s and presumably the D800. I find the biggest challenge is the low light autofocus really impacts the keeper ratio. Having said that, I used the E-M5 at a lot of New Orleans Mardi Gras night parades because I didn't want to carry a big camera and I was very pleased with the results.

The E-M5 is not the camera that the D3s and the D800 are. Having said that, it is way better than most people expect especially with the Olympus prime lens offerings. Just take a look at the files it can produce and decide for yourself.

Rgds,

Brent
