Re: Biggest improvement at ISO 200

To my eyes the high ISO quality (1600 and above) is slightly higher than the GX1, but at base ISO (200) it looks much cleaner with deeper blacks, even compared to the GX1 set at ISO 160

AFAIS the better looks of the EM5 comes from higher contrast and saturation at lower ISOs; at higher ISOs and RAW the EM5 advantage is about a half F-stop over GH2 and G3 and one F-stop over the ancient G2. WOW. Well, better than nothing.

Been playing around with it for about half hour. All I can say is: WOW.

Comparing RAW at various ISOs:

To my eyes, looks to be one stop better than GH2, GX1, and NEX-7, two stops better than E-P3, and only one stop worse than D800. Seriously doubt it's the same GX1/G3 sensor.
