Olympus E-PL1 Review
Studio scene comparison JPEG (higher sensitivities)
The E-PL1's JPEG engine is doing an excellent job here - it's retaining a good level of detail and saturation (which are both easily lost to noise reduction), without excessive amounts of noise at all ISOs. Even its highest setting is very good - we're used to cameras boasting higher ISOs than they can deliver to a good standard.
The Panasonic's images have slightly more detail but also more noise, and some of that noise will be giving the impression of detail. Overall, the E-PL1's images are the most natural and convincing here - avoiding the D3000's overly contrasty, noisier images and free from the color smearing that is starting to affect the E-P2 at ISO 3200. Most impressive is the E-PL1's ability to produce results comparable with the EOS 500D and Pentax K-x, despite its smaller sensor.
