    Re: E-5 Sample and Review Aggregation

    This has only one sample scene, and is only at ISOs 1600 and 3200, but includes a comparison I have been looking for, the E-3, E-5, and...D700! While there is a clear advantage to the D700 (the high ISO king outside the D3s), I think there is some smudging there, indicating significant NR from the D700's JPEG engine (something we have all suspected for a while). I do wish he supplied the RAWs, any way, here's everything!

    EDIT: Note that those pictures take forever to load.

    Thank you, John! I keep checking for actual reviews, and have thus far have found nothing (other than Robin Wong's, of course) I am getting anxious. Although I realized the other day that Pop Photo, who I have been checking, probably won't put it on their site until after they have published it in their magazine. Meh, I guess these reviews take some time to put together. But we must be getting very close to that release date, do we yet have anything more definitive than "in October"?

    Don't know if anyone has downloaded any of the files to play with them on their computer yet . . .

    . . . but I did (the set of Jpegs) and was very please to find that the 6400 under that good lighting was probably as good as 3200 ISO on my E-3 - - - but with nicer detail I think - and no visible banding. I printed out a quality glossy print of it without any noise reduction and while the subtle noise is there, it is a pretty nice looking 8x10. I could easily add Define (noise reduction) and clean it up decently and also have the 8x10 high gloss print to prove it.

    3200 ISO looked better than the 6400 result and cleaned up easily with Define, while maintaining more detail. The 1600 ISO result was very pleasing.

    Based on these samples, I could easily use 1600 ISO and lower for even portrait work with my weddings - and for sure the 3200 and probably even 6400 ISO for my lower light candid images without the noise being excessive and with a pretty detailed and colorful image quality.

    Unfortunately because of being copyrighted images, I can't even take a picture of the prints that I made to show you how nice they are. You'll just have to try them yourself and see if the results won't work with the style of images that you take. BTW - ISO 100 and 200 - - - stunning ::: ISO 400 and 800 - - - remarkable!

    For those who may not have noticed, Robin Wong has been lent another E-5. He is going to do some more testing with it!

    Re: E-5 Sample and Review Aggregation

    Hey ReggieB, you might want to add this review.

    http://lafotoboy.blogspot.com/...10/...-thoughts.html

    In short: if you own Oly glass this body is the best news in a long time. As you will be able to get better results from ALL of your existing glass. He has got some great "photographers" shots on his flickr page to go with the review. And frankly it is the first review that makes me go from "E-5 could be a sensible upgrade" to "wow - would love to have this body behind me Panleica 14-50 OIS or 11-22 etc, etc,

    Enjoy, Martin
