I have selected some of the E-M5 samples I published earlier and used Olympus Viewer 2.3 to develop them from RAW and with the noise filter set to OFF.

You can compare them with the same shots with the noise filter set to Standard, see:

Let me know what you think!

This is looking really good. At last high ISO usage will not be a concern as it was with earlier models of Oly DSLR's.

Edit: Updated the wording.

What, you mean it's usable at 400 ISO?

Ha ha. Very funny. :rolleyes: :D

The noise in most of these shots seems so well controlled that I find it very difficult to actually see that the noise filter is worth applying except at the highest iso. These shots are a great comparison resource thanks Ian.

That's my reaction, too. I don't think I'd use ISO 25600 except in the direst of circumstances but up to 12800 I'm quite impressed and pleasantly surprised. That's a sentence I never expected to be writing about an Olympus camera!

Having said that, high ISO is actually quite low in my priorities. I'm more interested in how the camera handles and the image quality for landscapes at ISO 200. I'd gladly swap that ISO 12800 and 25600 for ISO 50 and 100!

I would certainly love the high ISO's with the E-M5 for indoor concerts & events (dance socials & parties etc.).

Make that ISO 25 as well and I wouldn't care what it was like above 400 ISO.

Oh, I'll take the faster ISO, thanks! Just so long as there's the odd fast tele zoom or prime that'll CF adequately in something less than bright daylight to go with it.

Then I'll have a (heavy but nice and fast) D300 and associated lenses for sale ;)
