The E-5 produces 1m-wide prints that easily put most other systems to shame for detail/contrast, and this will not change for as long as the camera works.

I assume that, by "most other systems", you are acknowledging that cell phones and compacts outnumber DSLRs by a massive margin.

The E-5 is a fine, solid camera, but all of Oly's great processing can't bring the that circa 2008 sensor into the present.

For fun, let's see how the E-5 compares to a "last year's model" P&S...

As for resolution, here is what DPR says:

E-5: our chart are accurately described by the E-5 up to approximately 2600Lph

Year old P&S: The RX100 is capturing detail comfortably beyond 2600 lph

OK, yeah, it's fun to think the E-5 has more detail and such, but silly sites like Dxo and DPR have to go and ruin everything!

just had to go through and see where this thread went completely off the rails
where the difference between the build quality of E5 vs EM5 no longer became important
when people who had never used either dominated a thread pretty much about E5 vs the world (again) and became a thread about Tamron, print sizes & & well, pretty well anything else

theres your E5 DxO 'not quite 2600'

and this would be your RX100 DxO 'beyond 2600'

like many things DxO, utterly meaningless metrics
