Re: Confused reasoning...

The reasoning was as follows:

  • Olympus overstates ISO

  • As a result, it gives cleaner pictures at a stated ISO

  • This is cheating.

DPR debunk this allegation of cheating, by saying that lighting has been changed in the studio set-up, and that the lower light intensity being compensated by longer exposure shouldn't influence the noise test.

Instead of just accepting this, Raisted than says that longer exposure does influence noise; it gives more noise. I say, if that's the case, then instead of cheating, the Olympus is at a disadvantage compared to the others.

So, what the H3ll are we talking about? Maybe I am confused about who argues for what. But I am not confused about the logics of reasoning, unlike some others. I'm simply astonished at the amount of flack that DPR are getting on the m4/3 forum for publishing test shots of a m4/3 camera that make it look great.

. . . Well said Bilgy. And this thread has just about run it's course at least for most of us I'm thinking. The OP is apparently still trying to find some traction but he's infamous for never admitting defeat over at the Oly DSLR forum. Reminds me of the Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
