ePrice.com has kindly published a set of high-resolution shots at different ISOs produced by Olympus E-M5:
Looks disappointing to me. The small sensor generates so much noise. ISO400 is the absolute limit for serious (large) prints I think. So much for micro 4/3. Only the E-PM1 is interesting, since it’s fast and small (the one strong point that micro 4/3 has left). But then only as a small inexpensive carry everywhere camera when there’s enough light to use ISO200-ISO320.
Yes I agree these samples look rather bad. I wouldn’t make final conclusions out of these samples just yet. At higher ISOs, E-M5 should outperform E-PM1 by a good margin.
Check the EXIF in the photos!
They shot them with “digital zoom x2″, then this ISO test is totally useless an unreal.
There is a better ISO test at omuser forums:
