Testing out high ISO with OM-1

This past Monday at about almost 8PM, I spotted this White-Lined Sphinx moth around my neighbor as I was doing my after dinner walk.

At first, I tried to keep ISO at 6400 or below. But after a few tries, I could not freeze the wing even partially at SS below 1/1600. So I thought might as well cracked SS up a few notches and see what I could get.

I am fairly pleased with the results considering the high ISO. Of course, lots of details are lost but I don't think I can get even the same results with EM1.3 even at ISO6400 or ISO5000 in the same conditions.

Some key settings: C-AF +2 sensitivity, SH2 at 25FPS, Small Focus Target, Bird AI Detection on (it actually track the moth), AF limiter 0.5M-4M.  PP with DxO PL5, Mac photo and Topaz Denoise AI.

Here are a few images.
