Why all the agonizing?

A camera that requires ISO 3200 to do the same shot an ISO 2000 camera would require, would certainly push its ISO need higher and thus image quality would potentially suffer more. If what you are saying by the last paragraph is that then people need to make sure to verify the ISO testing along with this other test, honestly, how many people you see doing that? All they are doing is doing a straight forward ISO matching/setting and saying "hey, this camera does bad" , "Hey, this camera does better than… as good as…"

Since we have only the 'ISO series' not the full review, we don't have access to how the EM-5 meter tested in the ISO test. Moreover we don't know what the ISO test actually tests or how it does it. It is on that test that any comparability at all depends.

dpreview took the trouble to post their sample images up front, prior to the full test and the camera even being available to purchase... why are you so worried? just wait for the full review and you'll have the ISO test results too.

Cheers
