20x30" Print From E-M1.2 40-150 f/2.8 Pro w/MC-14 Straight to JPEG

I mentioned in a mother thread my testing with relatively large prints.  This is a follow-up post.   I have continued to work with 20x30 Printing from M4/3 OM-D E-M1 PRO lenses straight to JPEG at ISO 800.  A couple of ever-so-slight misses are helping me define my limitation such as the lake picture below at 20x30 was acceptable but really ended it's usefulness at 16x20; whereas, the song sparrow did great at 20x30.

My testing is concluding, and I think shooting simultaneously to RAW (Card Slot 1) and JPEG LF (Card Slot 2) will be my standard practice along with lowering the ISO when possible.  Had I had a RAW version of the bottom image it could of pulled off 20X30, particularly at a 64 ISO.

Beautiful at 20 X 30 even though ISO 800 and straight to JPEG.

Acceptable at 20 x 30, but 16 X 20 was really the limit due to smudge.  Starting in RAW instead of JPEG and ISO 64 instead of 800 would of made 20X30 fine.
