I can't believe how bright the moonlit scene appears, even with a 15 second exposure.

It's at ISO 1600, but pulled back about 2/3 EV for the scene as a whole and another 2/3 EV in the sky. Otherwise, it would look like it would be shot in midday sun, save for those stars in the sky.

I don't get using ISO 1600 with a long exposure on a tripod??

Subject motion. For that shot, I wanted the stars and the clouds to remain stars and clouds rather than star trails and cloud trails. Of course I tried both though. This one is at ISO 400 and 520 s (pulled back nearly four stops in PP for the scene as a whole and a bit more than that in the sky but with the shadows slider at 100).

Also, with your upcoming E-M1 you can do Live Bulb and watch it develop on the EVF/LCD.

I've already had that particular privilege. The "old" E-M5 was the first body to have that feature. See here for a few observations on how it works:
