The base ISO setting on the E-M5 is 200, but the actual (sensor saturation) base ISO (according to DXO) is 107.

We'll have to test it to be sure, but if it's anything like other recent models (GX7, E-M1, etc.), the new LOW setting will be like setting ISO 100 (or thereabouts) for an actual ISO of 107, so, not really an extended setting, and no loss of DR.

JPEG shooters will have to be more careful about clipping highlights, but they should still have just as much DR as the old ISO 200, assuming this LOW ISO setting is implemented like it has been in other recent m43 cameras.
