Thanks all... Much appreciated.
I will spend some more time diagnosing and processing things differently. I was wondering if it was due to -1.3EV and recovery. I have had problems before with RT producing really noisey images.
Thanks again

That would do it. The highlight recovery of E-M5 RAW is pretty remarkable. I usually shoot +.3 EV and have no trouble recovering detail from highlights that appeared to be blown. With the GF1 I had to be more careful about blowing highlighats, so I tended to under-expose or bracket to HDR in contrasty situations.
