That is a known issue with the E-M5 when using very fast lenses - lowest ISO being 200 and highest shutter speed 1/4000 sec.

And I talked about this weakness a whole year ago while researching this camera.  Me bad, bad mouthing something I did not own and had not even touched at that time.  (How dare you?!)  

Not that I'm against talking bad about a system... I was curious about the ISO 200 myself, and I assume the shutter speed may be a physical limit, or one they're willing to impose for sake of warranty etc. Still, it's kinda funny... others say Oly overstated their ISO, and some say it works out to being 125 ISO compared to some other cameras, etc etc (no need to explain ISO to me, I don't care, I can take dim shots at 3200, I don't care if it's "really" 1600 or 2000 or whatever).

ISO is too low! ISO is too high! Can't please everyone
