Re: OM-D E-M5 - my review sample has arrived

Whats lacking until now is to have some RAW form the OM D_5 available to play with (apply post processing).

If you could provide some and are no longer restricted to publishing JPG only, I'd very much appreciate.
No need for ISO rows nor any need for anything special, just some "normal" pix would do fine for me

Have a look at our Four Thirds User site - lots of RAW and full res JPEG samples there, high and low ISO. Better ones to come, though.

Re: OM-D E-M5 - my review sample has arrived

Those I've seen when they came out, thanks - but what I'm specifically looking for are final FW RAW files

The later two sets were final firmware. Only the hardware was pre-production.

Re: OM-D E-M5 - my review sample has arrived

Ok
- well, I forgot to mention that I highly dislike the 12-50 for photographs

Don't you have mFT prime or FT HQ lenses? and of course outdoor shots would be fine as well, more "natural" light conditions than in a mall, you know...

Re: OM-D E-M5 - my review sample has arrived

In the samples from Focus 10 of the 12 samples were taken using the superb 45mm f/1.8, but I will be compiling an extensive sample gallery using both m.Zuiko and Zuiko lenses over the coming days.

Yes, but you weren't using to right aperture/ISO/shutter speed*



*Delete whichever is applicable.

Re: OM-D E-M5 - my review sample has arrived

Ian, I appreciate what you've shown us so far (& you do have a life besides pandering to our wishes & gripes) although I may not be able to justify buying this camera body yet, I would like to know where I can get one of those OM-D 'T' shirts that guy is wearing (I normally take SM).

I've had some fun playing with the RAW files in Olympus Viewer II, trying the different NF settings, Picture Modes, Art Filters with effects etc., but the strange thing with that program is how long it takes to display the photo properly after updating the RAW. I timed it & it took 25 seconds before it changed from a very grainy appearance to its final appearance (using the latest 1.3 version).

Thanks Ian for all your effort & advice you give us.
