About me:

I graduated with a degree in electrical engineering and a minor in computer science from the University of Victoria. I am now working as a programmer, so the plan is for digital photography to remain a hobby and not become a source of income. I have also written some image processing software as a hobby project.

I would like to see what a Canadian goose does to that wing.

DylanHoen: AE Bracketing ±2 (2, 3, 5, 7 frames at 1/3 EV, 2/3 EV, 1 EV steps)
Wouldn't that make it ±3?

Some more information about aeb for hdr:

As an engineer that likes to tinker with things, they added almost everything that I would have wished for.
In sensor phase detect for old 4/3rds lenses.
GPS image tagging - through cell phone, which gets around the GPS battery hog problem by using the phone's battery.
Remote control with image preview on a cell phone.
Automated multi-shot HDR built in.
One other wish that I've has for a while is open source firmware, but they put together such a well rounded product that I have almost run out of ideas for firmware modifications. Pretty much the only idea I have left is automated focus stacked macro.
The lens looks nice, too. 12-60 would have been nice but after you factor in the laws of physics, this was probably the better compromise.
This looks like the uncompromised upgrade to my E-510 that I have been waiting for.
The price, well, if you compare the feature set to what else is on the marked, it is technically a good deal, but not one I can afford to jump on at this time.

On photo ISO 25600_nf-off in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (4 comments in total)

1/200 of a second is pretty fast. In that case, you might want to lower the ISO to reduce noise at the expense of shutter speed. To really test a situation where you need that high ISO, maybe make it 1/10 of a second for each ISO. You might need some neutral density filters or to move the light source away to maintain the shutter speed at higher ISO. It could be useful to compare 1/1000, 1/100, 1/10, 1, and 10 second shutter speeds at each ISO, but that would be a lot of work.
