Then I messed up.

DNG-conversion messes the E-410 files. You get a lot more detail if
you just process the .orf with acr. Actually even then E-410 can do a
lot better as with Master/Studio you can turn off the noise reduction
for superior detail. I'm sure your samples would be a lot better if
processed in Master without NR.

I won't use Master (have enough RAW processing apps as it is), and I didn't want to use ACR because it applies a different amount of NR to the different cameras at baseline. Your point is well taken though. It seems I have done the E-410 a disservice. At any rate, the main outcome I was looking at was smearing in the extreme corners, and I think the results there are pretty clear for these two systems.

To partially address the point you raised, I've uploaded a screen shot of both images viewed in Lightroom without conversion to DNG here ->

You can also feel free to download the RAW files from here and play with them in Master or any other application if you like ->
