    Thank you Ian, for all this.

    For me, image #23 tells the all story:

    A perfectly sharp ISO 6400 action picture, with almost no noise in the (very) dark areas and a very good highlight/shadow balance.
    Perhaps with the raw file we can get even more detail from the shadows, and that, at ISO 6400 in a 4/3 sensor is very good!

    Thanks Ian, it looks more than interesting.

    In looking around I spotted this video with regards to the new IS which I'm sure will help image quality for many.

    I am very pleased with the ISO results. When some say that the 25,600 isn't usable - - - that is really subjective. From the look of these samples as well as a full rez RAW file at that setting that I was able to download before the files were taken offline - I can see myself using them if need be. These results don't appear any worse and maybe even better than what I get sometimes when I am forced to use 3200 ISO on my E-3. I'm not a pixel peeper and only care about the print results or the resized for use (always much better looking than full size of a monitor) results that I can get.

    I will only know for sure when I actually try one myself at those extreme ISO settings - - - but yeah - having what appears to be a pretty clean 6400 and even 12,800 is pretty sweet (as long as the detail isn't all smeared away).

    Yes - good point, and hand held at 1/6th second exposure so the IS working well

    Thanks Barr1e - I actually think the video is incorrect The way he represents the corrected IS before the E-M5, moving the camera up and down and side to side without and tilting, is how the new system works. Previously the correction was only for tilting or angular motion, tilting up and down and panning left and right. And of course the new system also corrects for camera rotational shake, which makes five ways.

    Thanks for the samples, Ian. I managed to snag two full size JPEG samples from another site and made prints with only a slight crop to 8.5 X 11 and sharpening for print (came out 432dpi). Oh my, that is a fine print and under a loupe, too. I thought I saw my E-5 cringe......
    Am awaiting your subjective thoughts and feelings about what you have used so far.

    Some of the more observant of you noticed that the copyright watermark had the wrong year - I have now corrected this!

    I have read a complaint on another site that my high ISO sequence of shots was taken in conditions that weren't dark enough! 0.6 seconds exposure at f/7.1 and ISO 800 is not dark enough?! Sheesh!

    The shots have highlights, lowlights, mid-tones, and detail. What more do you want?
