Another false comparison from you , Donald. The Canon shot would be much better if you used the same 1/60 shutter speed and -1/3 EC, and had focused properly. You admit below that you didn't know how to use the Canon. Why imply this shows a comparison of camera body capabilities if one of the images images hasn't been taken properly?

To be fair, neither of these images were taken properly. The Olympus shot was just slightly less botched than the Canon shot.
