    I understand from discussions I followed on other web-sites that Capture One is one of or the best regarding sharpness. Some time ago I had a Capture One license and it was amasing what detail this pulled from E-300 files. Since moving into the Mac environment I am using Aperture. Mostly for its colours.
    No doubt that there used to be problems with Adobe Camera RAW /Lightroom and some Olympus RAW camera formats - the E-400 for example. often resulted in what looked like micro fractures in the fine detail of an image.

    But we're now on the 7th generation of Adobe Camera RAW. I haven't noticed any problems with Adobe's RAW conversions for a long time.

    I certainly have never tested an E-520 [I don't have one] against my 620 or 510, but if what you say is true of the 450, I might just look for a used one.

    On the plus side, the E-450 has the same improved TruePic III+ image processor as the E-30 and E-620 that solved the problem of high ISO dark area banding in the E520/420 and earlier. DxOMark measurements show it has about half an EV greater dynamic range than the E-510.

    On the other hand the E-450 has no in-body image stabilisation. Although an E-450 is likely to be cheaper second hand, the bargain model in my view is the E-620 - not much larger, 12MP (but basically the same ISO noise and dynamic range), IS, articulating screen, bigger viewfinder and 7 AF points instead of 3, and these AF points work to 1EV less light.

    Re: Comparing resolution between low and high strength anti-aliasing (E-5 vs E-30)

    Maybe a silly question but is it possible to influence (switch off) the anti-aliasing filter in the E-30 or is it an in-built feature.

    regards

    The anti-aliasing filter is a hardware element--a material that sits in front of (i.e. attached to) the sensor. So there is no way to turn it off.

    I knew some body who said they had removed or disconnected the AA filter on a 510, but I have no idea how that would be done if at all true. I think it would involve some in depth knowledge of the inner workings of the camera.

    It is possible, but it's a delicate surgical procedure. A bit of searching found a company that offers the service: http://www.maxmax.com/IRCameraConversions.htm

    Thanks Hal

    It would be interesting to compare pictures with the AA filter and after it had been removed on a E-510 or any camera for that matter.
