Not even that is true...

Another website that compared raws and says that the E-5 performance is ballpark that of the E-3 and pretty similar to E-30 (I say too similar ).

I see you are a brave man saying this and here !

DXo, and now this. Oh and mfbernstein when he posted it over a month ago now.

Please, add me to this short list.

For those who think I am just trying to be a jerk or such: no, if you like your E-5 that's just great. If you know what you are getting and love it by all means. I just want to dispel the whole "1 stop better sensor performance by tweaks of the same sensor" non sense that is running around, when people compare just jPEGS. Of course if you are just a JPEG shooter, that's a real advantage.

Not even this is true. Go here, and look the comparison pictures:

The E5 NR is so strong that destroyed all detail. Competition JPG is better at ISO1600, at least under default settings.

And the GH2 still not in stock in B&H! Damn it!!

Cheers,
