m4/3 is noisy? What noise?
3

So I just got my new Olympus 100-400 lens in today and while I was testing it out I hit some lighting conditions that required a boost to the ISO. With the fear all the reviews had with this this lens needs good light or images would be destroyed by noise on the m4/3 system, I thought the camera was trying to raise the ISO too much to get a higher shutter speed so I put it in shutter priority mode and forced a lower shutter to allow the ISO to come down. I now think that was a mistake. The images below show I still have a lot of ISO headroom left even at ISO 1600. Now it's time to experiment with ISO 3200 and ISO 6400.

ISO 1250

ISO 1250

ISO 1600

ISO 1600

What is the highest ISO you are comfortable shooting at?
