    From studying the images Ian kindly took for me I'd say the lower ISO range employs exactly the same trick used by digital camera manufacturers through the years : Base is 200, lower are 'fake', but the characteristics of the fake 100-ish can be useful in using Jpegs : although because of the current sensor's absence of noise the LOW ISO might not be quite as useful as on, say, the e-P2.

    I'm sure if using only RAW, that the picture provided by the LOW ISO can be created exactly from the ISO 200 RAW ... just as is the case for the 12mpx sensors up to and including the e-pL1 & E-5

    Somehow Olympus forgot to stretch the Jpeg ISO range downwards with the e-pL2, e-P3, e-pL3, e-pM1, e-M5, e-pL5 and e-pM2 ... doh!

      I looked at the raws that Ian provided in Lightroom (after some EXIF tweaking with Exiftool to convince LR that they are from an E-M5) and I agree that ISO 100 looks like ISO 200 overexposed somewhat. It does seem to me, based on the samples, that it's not providing very much.

        I have now uploaded a comparison between ISO 200 and Low - remember that the first lot of images taken for Ulfric here were ISO brackets.

          Hi Ian,

          Can you tell me if the focusing of 4/3 lenses, in particular the 50-200mm, 12-60mm and 50mm macro has any improvement over the EM-5? Does the focusing still hunt back and forth before locking on.

          Much appreciated.

          Tom

          Ps I'm using the MMF3 adapter

                  I believe it does work but the automatic eye-sensor doesn't... you might need to do a firmware update though.

                  If for some reason you decide not to buy at that price let me know!

                      How does it rate against the E-M5 and E-M10?

                        It's the combination I use. The E-M1 for studio work with PRO lenses and the E-P5 as my walkabout/street shooter with 9-18 and short fast primes.
