Re: These are the first I've seen that don't look worse

Than the output from my E-PL1. Of course, my E-PL1 is set up for optimal quality (i.e. NR low, sharpness 0 and the muted colour scheme) and I expose to the right, often selecting the +0.3 JPEG, sometimes the +0.7 if there are no blown highlights and this usually gives shadows that are clean enough for me.

The one thing I don't buy (as espoused by some here) is that they've had to somehow compromise IQ to get the AF speed (I just don't think those two factors are in any way related). We may just be looking at a combination of bad defaults and (an outside possibility) that Olympus are going through a learning curve to get the best out of a new sensor (or alternatively, they got the new AF working with the old sensor first and we'll see 16MP later).
