Re: The L1 advantage....

With the L1, I can expose for the highlights and push the shadows something stupid before things start to break down badly. I can't do this with any Olympus camera I've owned. That said, the current Olympus cameras protect the highlights very well at ISO 200+ and in PP IMO, pulling back a photo that is too bright is trivial compared to pushing shadows. Swings/Roundabouts/Horses/Courses etc......
