Re: High ISOS : JPEG E-M5 > APS-C and some 35mmFF !!!

If JPEG is important to you, like it is to me (considerable time savings) on the majority of the work then today the E-M5 might be the best choice of all.

I make extended use of JPEG. Though shooting RAW+JPEG, I mostly use the JPEG. Only when I plan for certain work I use the RAW.

Since in print it is very difficult to discern differences between normal enlargement prints (A4/A3 and maybe even A2)  the E-M5 is allready the best tool for my job.

In the comparometer from DPriew it's clear that until ISO6400 the E-M5 has the edge.

At base ISO the D7100 is cleaner but for landscape when bracketing this small advantage is also limited.

So if you allready have Nikon gear the D7100 is the way to go, but if you want a small total package, there's no getting around the E-M5.
