Here are some sample shots from Olympus E-M5 at various ISOs.

These images only tell us that the photographer was able to produce nice small preview images for a website. I think that when we get to see full size images, it will be a slight disappointment. The same useless high ISO image quality as all the previous micro 4/3 camera’s. We need something new and good now. Wait, good but not new, an APS-C sensor!
I sometimes use these resolutions for my current Oly and I have to admit, these look quite a bit better, especially at 3200 and 6400. Somewhere between 1 and 2 consistent stop improvement will be very welcome.
As for the APS-C sensor, I doubt that will happen. I doubt much of the current lens line-up will be able to handle a larger sensor without creating some vignetting.

I have had Olympus cameras for many years, more than I would care to admit. When I went into digital I bought 4/3rds, as this was meant to be the next thing. I feel that Olympus should have adapted their lens mount to the OM standard, and allowed the full use of the “legacy” OM lenses, the 4/3 and the micro 4/3 lenses via adaptors. This signals the demise of the 4/3 standard mount. I have bought my last Olympus camera.
I said the same thing about 2 years ago…sold all my Oly 4/3rds SLR Gear….went to 1 of the big 2.
……technically much better but….there is something about Oly’s imaging pipeline that is not equaled. I just purchased an Oly E-PL2 kit and operationally its a step backwards, but the IQ is sweet….the E-M5 promises to be what 4/3rds should have been.
