You're assuming that these lenses are equivalent, but the Panasonic lens is actually a better lens.
He's right, RAW files typically have a (somewhat lower resolution) JPEG preview embedded. I believe (though I haven't checked) that the E-M5 also has this.
It looks like Snapseed supports RAW on the iPad, but it doesn't specify which RAW formats.
Thanks. Do you know if it does distortion correction, or is it just a plain dcraw-style conversion?
Does anyone know of a (good) RAW-development app for tablets (iPad or Android) that supports Olympus (E-M5) RAWs? I was thinking it would be nice to have some kind of tablet along for trips, but I...
