I know it's not released yet so wouldn't feature in this comparo...but the new Olympus offering looks like an excelent choice for anyone venturing into this market. Am I wrong?

Pete_Murrell: I have only one question that may not be answerable by people in this forum however I will ask it anyway.
I currently use 4/3rds stuff and obviously I love it. I was just wondering if anyone has heard rumours about Olympus releasing a camera with this sensor in the 4/3 lens mount range (Maybe an E-6 or 7)? ... because I can't see myself investing in a whole new range of lenses but based on this small snippet, this sensor is pretty special. Fingers crossed. Can't wait for the full review.

All your replies are great...but left me on the knifes edge of 'almost' answering my question. I have invested a lot of money in my 4/3 lenses. And I love them. If I were to buy the em 5 and the 4/3 to M4/3 lens converter...is this an option? Does the converter decrease the cameras/lenses capabilities?

ybizzle: There is nothing more I love than a camera with the latest tech but with the retro looks of yesterday (hence why I bought both the Fuji X10 and X100 cameras). That said, I cannot justify purchasing this camera over say the X100 or the X-Pro 1 mainly due to sensor size and I personally prefer Fuji's take on the retro looks. However, the image quality from the camera is indeed quite good so for those wanting a m4/3 cam, you can't go wrong with this beast.

Curious...can the other camera companies offerings in m4/3 take Oly's superior lenses?

rocklobster: All this talk about ISO error is quite understandabale with cameras having different tone curves. It is long known that the G3/GX1 tone curve doesn not roll oo into highlights wheras the E-Px does roll off somewhat and then there is the slope of the curve - apples and oranges for the JPEG output. The acid test is how they comprare on the RAW image.

Tell me I am wrong?

Cheers

What about for people who don't care for long hours of post exposure mucking around and don't shoot in RAW? Instead like a good image straight from the camera in JPEG. This isn't a challenge by the way, I am just curious as to your thoughts.
