Re: This is what happens at high ISO with my G1

But if you want better low-light capability, I think you should think more about upgrading your body than of upgrading your standard zoom. With the E-M5, I can go to ISO 3200 with roughly the same quality as the one I get with the G1 at 800. And even other, and less expensive bodies, such as the G3, the G5, or the GH2 will make a considerable difference here.

Thanks. Yes, what you say makes a lot of sense.

And thank you for your comment further down about viewfinders. I absolutely share your opinion.

I would have to look more closely about switching to Olympus. I use my DMW-MA1 adaptor a lot on my G1 to get access to my Leitz lenses. I assume Olympus has an adaptor, but am not sure.
