RRJackson: Here's something I don't understand at all. Metering on modern cameras can break the frame down into thousands of segments for complex metering calculations...but nobody can seem to make a metering system that prevents highlight clipping. No way at all to reduce the exposure if the highlights are clipping? Really? In 2014 we can't make that happen? The system can analyze 91,000 segments of the frame, but can't tell if one of them is clipping?
Whether Olympus takes this anywhere is another question but the following DPR article from March 2014 indicates they're pursuing "selective exposure". I wish them all the best and hope they can finally address the sudden clipping of blown highlights with digital sensors and more closely model the smoother transition that we saw with film.

I guess it would have been to too much to ask to include the phase detect from the E-M1. They went to all the trouble to develop it and show their commitment to 4/3 and then leave it off the next camera they release?
That was simply amazing - Congratulations
Very timely - I just got some heavier lenses for wildlife and was researching upgrades to my current setup. I realize it's impossible to satisfy everyone but congratulations for a really well done article on this class of heads.Thanks
dahod: Overall, I like the new tool. Sometimes the jpegs were taking a long time to refresh but I'm guessing that might be because of a lot of users looking at it right now.
It would be nice to see the Olympus E-5 represented. There's the new E-M1 and other micro 4/3 but no 4/3 system. I know Olympus has said that micro 4/3 is their future but it would be a shame to not include the E-5 and it's 4/3 lenses for comparison.
Sorry - this was meant for the new test scene article - my bad
dahod: Sorry if this shows up twice - I'd posted earlier but it disappeared - odd
Anyway, thanks to DPreview - good work.
It would be nice to see the Olympus E-5 included. I know that Olympus has announced the E-M1 as their future but the E-5 and it's 4/3 lenses gives us the chance to compare the two systems.
That's all I can ask - Thanks
