Wilson,
Your post suggests that you plan to use high ISO for your night shots. You may find this article by Wrotniak to be of interest - and it may help to avoid disappointment with the results.

(I realise that you will be using an EP-5 whilst the article concerns EM-5 and EM-1 - but I suspect the similarities in the EP-5 and EM-5 sensor & processing engine are sufficiently close to be relevant for you).

Re: Menu setting for real time histogram on B shutter

I think your E-P5's Liveview will handsomely do what you need Wilson. It shows a building histogram with each update of the display and you can end the shot whenever you want simply by pressing the shutter button again. Good luck with the shooting. Would love to see the results once you're back - sounds an exciting shoot coming up!

I was probably intending to try a few ISO’s but to keep noise to a minimum, probably not much over 400 on the EP-5.

For some shots, the 60 seconds at 200ISO (base) on the M240 may be good enough, especially with the light gathering abilities of the Noctilux. I have not used it a lot yet as it had to go straight back to Leica for adjustment when I got it new just before Christmas. I put it on my M240 and within 30 seconds, knew that the rangefinder cam was out of adjustment by comparing rangefinder image convergence with zoomed focus peaking. It has only been back a week or so but at least it is correct now. When I had the older f1.0 Noctilux a few years ago, I could certainly take pictures by candlelight, hand held at around 1/24 second and ISO 1000, which was the practical maximum on my old M8.
