There's a thread currently running on dpreview that looks interesting:

Here's a quote from it:

"The results are truly amazing: The cameras displaying the biggest texture loss were the Sonys, no matter if NEX, SLT od DSLR. Close behind followed Canon, Nikon was mixed and Pentax relatively good. And now the major surprise: At low ISOs, the Olympus E-5 was among the very best as it produces nearly no to no texture loss at all."

Thanks for posting. I notice that the samples were done at 100 ISO - which I understand is not as good as 200 on the E5, so presumably even better results are possible.

One of the features I value with ACR is the clarity slide which if used judiciously can enhance texture. Since I have had the E5 I find I use this feature to a reduced degree to achieve the same effect, compared with my E30. Not scientific but it might serve to confirm this study?
