    I also feel the E-30 has better noise performance than the G1. They are both much improved over earlier E-System models, but the E-30 has a more consistent grain structure than the G1.

    Ian - you are exactly right in your thoughts & conclusions about E30 noise.

    Undoubtedly better than G1 and E520 (I have both) - and last night I was out till about 8.30pm - on the S.Brittany coast shooting up to 2000 ISO quite happily. So very low light. I find ISO 800 to be virtually noise free, 1600 perfectly useable. ISO 2000 is noisy / grainy, as you might expect, but holds its colour balance.

    I used Noiseware Pro, and the filtered image was fine. I still see posts claiming that the E520 has better noise characteristics .... but that is quite beyond me!

          I've wondered whether this your posts are an experiment being carried out for some second rate social sciences course, but then again you could actually belive your own self importance
