One person did some tests IR filters on a lot of cameras. Turns out the EM5 has a very weak IR filter. Some wonder if this is what is causing certain kinds of flaring with the EM5 that isn't occurring in other m4/3rds cameras.

Are you confusing IR and AA, or are they the same thing?

I can get the EM5 flower to look almost identical to the E3 by matching the WB and turning down the 'vibrancy' in Lightroom. However, certain other parts of the image then look faded (like the leaf beside the flower). It occurs to me that the flower is giving off a lot of IR. The result is the flower is looking slightly overcooked compared to the rest of the file.

Interesting point about the flower.  Some of this may of course be due to the push to get higher ISOs cleaner. Like many others, instead of a AAless and AA'ed camera options, why not Low ISO, High ISO bodies?

Interestingly, what you are saying about the E3 verse the EM5 is what a lot of people were saying about the E1 verse the E3.

Interesting point, I didnt know about the E-1 E-3 debate, of course change means a change in workflow as well which can be a bit difficult.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Indeed, I actually bought this again mostly for studio portraits (more standard ones) because the colour is just right (for me).
