What I don't understand is the surprise in all of you about the false Oly's ISO.

When the E5 came out, people was very excited with its much bigger DR. What a disappointment it was to me to realize that the "bigger DR" was just underexposing the RAW file by one stop. Easy magic, isn't it: protect highlights at the expense of noise.

As a RAW shooter, I had to configure the camera to +1 EV everywhere. Sounds like a good solution, BUT then everything looks badly overexposed in the LCD, and it is tricky to judge exposure. The JPGs look horrible, but when you open the RAW in the converter it looks good.

And of course .. .as a nature shooter, by the +1EV needed, you're lost any shutter speed advantage you might have though you were getting, yes?
