Any E-M5 present owner with access to a GH2?


I would like to know if any of present E-M5 owners has access to a GH2 unit and to a m43 Panny 100-300 lens (from his/her or from some friend or from a shop at a shopping center, etc.), to perform the real test who will answer if GH2 stills the benchmark in m43 world .

In which case the test consist of several pairs of side-by-side shots of:

1.- Very distant signs with very little letters and/or numbers on it.

2.- Distant wildlife moving subjects (street dogs, cats, birds, etc. would do the job)

This includes to try and to show the result of BIF (Birds In Flight) shots attempts, even if the result was and unfocused or blurred image in any of both cameras case.

And they must be taken:

  • Handheld .

  • Using AF, no manual focusing.

  • IBIS and/or OIS on.

In GH2 case it is simple, since it would be just 100-300 OIS on, since GH2 has no IS.

But in E-M5 case, that would be the moment to split the test and check if birders real experience of obtaining more keepers when IBIS and OIS are both on, in EP3 case , is also the case with E-M5. Meaning to take side-by-side comparative shots with the same E-M5 "IBIS-on and OIS-off" vs "IBIS-on and OIS-on".

  • Some pairs at base ISO E-M5(200) and GH2(160) and some using ISO-Auto (and no upper ISO limit).

The results could be posted either here or at any free-acces photo-base as flickr, FTU, etc.

Those series of comparative samples would allow details comparisons at FTU forum to answer the pending question about E-M5 vs GH2 real world ultimate conditions delivery.

Thanks in advance,
