Re: New Firmware 2.0

I've done some testing on both my E-P5 and E-M5 post upgrade and this is my experience:

- ISO low/100 gives lower shadow noise, but reduced DR. It's easier to clip highlights.

- If you shoot raw, you can get exactly the same results at ISO 200 by overexposing by 1 stop and pulling it back in post-processing.

Net, net - describing it as "low" is a reflection of what's happening. It's a post-processing trick. Personally, I'd have been happier if Oly had spent the time on the firmware upgrade adding the ability to assign Mysets to the mode dial. Then, instead of pressing menu,right, down, right, down * n, right, enter, up, enter - all I'd need do is move the mode dial!
