Addendum: and keep in mind that the DR / SNR numbers are calculated based on optimum exposure (to the right), and not based on exposing to the camera's meter. If you expose to the camera's meter with the E-M5, you'll underexpose by about a stop, and the resulting DR will be lower than the maximum possible DR had you exposed optimally to the right.

Am I right that dynamic range will be lost in RAW post-processing when brightening? If so, why did Olympus do that?
