What under exposer ?

Posted samples above, if anything the OMD is fine.

Your E-M5 1/160 shot that relied on flash alone was underexposed compared to the 1/30 shot which obviously was aided by ambient light.

Bad subject that doesn't tell us much except that TTL flash exposure on E-M5 (and all the Pens) does underexpose.

If you are happy with that underexposure and think that it is normal, then why try and tell the everyone who sees/proves the flash underexposure that they are wrong?

I could be like my friend above and repeat 100 times, Oly TTL flash underexposes.

But I like to save the Internet for more useful things.

All the shots are aided by ambient light in some way, the 1/160s less so than the 1/30s.

And its a pretty good average subject, much better than a white wall.

Serious;y though its quite ridiculous to say Olympus ttl system under exposes by the degree that you are claiming.

Each and every system will vary by a few 10ths of a stop and that's about it.
