Re: Mini DR test here

If you say so. I've never used a GH-2 (never liked the feel of it in the hand), so I can't offer any insight there. All I know is that there is a genuine and meaningful improvement over my E-P3. I was always happy with the image quality form my E-P3, except at higher ISOs, so I'm very pleased with the extra performance of the E-M5 :D.

And the result is GH2 levels, give or take. So use your preferred testing methodology, find a GH2, and insert that number.

I'd expect DXO to give it around 11.2EV normalised for print, which is perfectly adequate for some comfy PP work, but not an inspiring result. It suggests either a very good job done of getting the best out of an old tech sensor (ie GX1 rework), next gen old tech sensor (G5) or a new mid tech (single on board ADC) sensor (GH2 cut down to size, Samsung, or G5 again, if Panny are going that way).

I posted a couple of raws showing bright highlights and deep shadows that somebody processed comparing the E-P3 and E-M5. You can get an idea of the difference there.

Can the technical experts who have been bombarding pixels with photon accelerators and dissecting noise particles emitted comment on what the Techradar review's verdict regarding E-M5's stupendous image results?

I would really like to hear from those who have previously analysed to great details RAW files comment about the review finding that it has a DR of 13 , and that it is the best of all compact camera. Is that believable?
