Bluetrain048: Big question for me is, how quiet is that shutter? Seems like the perfect candid/street/documentary camera. I miss the beautiful sound of the E-1!
The EM-5 shutter is very similar to the E-1. Soft and smooth. Not the metallic sounding slap-clack of the E-30.
Peiasdf: Being reading DP for six, seven years and this is the only time I think the review is unbalanced.
I have never heard to anyone say, "I am buying an EVIL/mirrorless camera. Let's compare E-M5 and 60D/1100D". Why wasn't E-M5 compared and contrasted with NEX-5/7 and X-Pro1? Maybe you should consider redo the top-down size comparison and EVF size with A37, NEX-5/7 and X-Pro1.
The IQ review is also questionable. I can clearly see the NEXs perform better and I have no doubt the X-Pro1 that DP has in office is doing just as well. (Why isn't X-Pro1 reviewed yet? It is available a month before E-M5)
I don't know about the DR chart. The SONY 24mp sensor has the highest DR of any APS-C sensor and if I am reading the chart right, E-M5 have greater range.
Insignificant indeed. 99% of us do not wish to shoot black cats in coal mines at midnight. You can keep your chunky cameras with ISO 128,000. Go troll the Canon forums.
