That's the thing, though - it's REALLY HARD to blow highlights on the OM-D. Apart from the great DR, it even has a "Shadow/Highlight" mode that will show you, in realtime, if you are blowing the highlights, and it can be adjusted to suit where you want it to show clipping. There's really no reason to be blowing highlights on the OM-D if you are making use of the tools the camera provides to prevent it, and those tools aren't present in any form on the 60D (or any other camera with an optical viewfinder).

You may very well be right. But it is hard to argue when someone says that believe otherwise. May be his camera does.

Further my k-x that has sony sensor, does blow high lights. Very good sensor , but in bright sun light it does blow high lights. Not a big issue for me, since i shoot in manual mode, i take care of it. No complains.

The K-X is known for blowing highlights because Pentax tend to bias dynamic range for shadow recovery rather than highlight recovery. The OMD is way better for retaining highlights and if someone is struggling to retain highlights with the OMD then either their camera is faulty or they don't know what they are doing.It has a histogram, highlight clipping warnings and liveview WYSIWYG display, I'm not sure what else the camera could do to tell you when highlights are blowing apart from tapping you on the shoulder and shouting in your ear
