My E-1 can't do that.

The more I see from this camera the more I realize that it's a dream upgrade for me. I feel bad that Olympus is having to work negative press from not having all the numbers up as people expect, but to me this camera looks amazing.

Cheers,
Seth

Someone else made in another thread a nice list of everything that was great about the E-3 (and that Olympus kept in the E-3), as well as a list of things that users complained about in the E-3 (and that Olympus improved upon with the E-5).
Pretty convincing.

I can't say for anyone else, but I'm felling pretty good about the E-5 after looking at samples on this and other sites.

Very useable performance, shown here, pretty much forget about noise for the type/style shooting I do.

I see banding in iso6400. But till iso 3200 the photos look great.

Yes indeed. I pity those folks who think specs are more important than actual image quality and performance.

shot jpeg (of course)

noise filter is set to standard
grad is normal
sharpness etc all 0
shot with a 12-60 @ 60mm, firmware 1.201

odd stuff
has another noise setting tagged as 'auto' as well
focus mode: SF, SAF AF sensor
AF fine tune 0
white balance 2
white balance
manometer pressure 0kpa
scale factor to 35mm 2

on the ISO3200 file Imagenomic didnt even touch the detail in post, finish looks fine. I bet the way to shoot it for jpeg is just the same as E3, NF Low, do the rest in post

Let that be a lesson to me and others. When the specs were leaked I said that's got to be disinformation, they can't give us that little after 3 years. Now I see the images, it's the dream upgrade for me too. Only issue is $1700 and 200 extra grams. Any chance of retrofitting the sensor and processor into an E30? I can certainly live without video.

I like how the colors are maintained all the way up to 6400
In reply to kociasek, Sep 21, 2010

Finally we get some samples with the default NR and detail retention features being shown. With OOC jpegs like this, I might be rethinking my workflow.

That's better ISO performance than I'm getting out of my 5dmkII

Those are really impressive..
In reply to John Mason, Sep 21, 2010

I don't know what to complain about in those pictures. Color is maintained perfectly all the way up to 6400 iso, and noise is not objectionable at all.

Using that kind of performance with good lenses would make for a very low light shooting camera.

I continue to say this but can you imaging what Olympus could do with a full frame 35 mm sized sensor? Wow.

Olympus has really been doing some work on this camera. The IQ in these images is way more than I expected. I can't wait to get my hands on one.

Job well done, Olympus!

for me to possibly pre -order one ;-).
I wasn't going to, but what the hey!

I have all the HG and SHG glass I'll ever need, and a body with 20% or more better resoultion, couldn't hurt at all.
I am never going to jump shiip,as I am still very enamoured with my E-3

I'm sure once all the official 'testers' put out their reviews, there will be alot of people having second thoughts about the "underwhelmed" statements that they were making.

What price?
In reply to gandalfII, Sep 22, 2010

What price would be "nice" for you? I'm suspecting that if Olympus does end up fighting uphill against negative perception ("same sensor waaaaaa") regardless of the image quality, the price will settle quite quickly to something more palatable. It seems to me that Olympus always prices high initially, then lowers rather than pricing low and maintaining. (Unlike how, for example, Nikon priced the landmark D300 quite low and it maintained its retail price for years).

I'm guessing the E-5 will be $1500 in a couple months. I expect it to be $1200 in a year. That's where I'm looking to purchase. From what I've seen, though, I'm now ready to start some serious saving toward the E-5.

Cheers,
Seth

My initial whinning is starting to wane. THe more I see of this tool, the more I like it. I am assuming that the firmware is the 0.3 or whatever the other sites have been using.

The level of detail is amazing in the high ISO photos.

The next few years could be very interesting in the world of digital photography with Panny, Oly, and Sony innovations.

Too late. There have been a good number of posts saying $1700 is too high (and a year too late). No I will not cite them for you. Feel free to use search.
