at least my copy of it anyway. Firstly the comment that the G5 at ISO 1600 is like the X-S1 at ISO 400 is rubbish. If you shoot the X-S1 in EXR mode, like the X10, it is very clean and ISO 3200 is very usable. Even at the higher resolution I would not say the G5 is two stops better, more like 1 to my eyes (I've owned a G5 as well).

I stand gladly corrected, as you said I did not own the X-S1, but I also think many owners did not get to grips with the right set-up of the EXR mode and when to use which settings


EXR mode is excellent but you need to know how to use it, usually by experimentation, I think plenty have missed the boat on that one.
