Thank you for posting these Ian, they look very encouraging to me, I think Olympus have a real winner on their hands with the E-M5.

Is Paramo selling that E-M5 tee shirt?

Like dingenus wrote. ISO 25600 on the EM-5 looks better than ISO 3200 on my E-3. One can really hope that Olympus put this sensor and IS in an E-5 body, so I can use my 4/3 lenses and get results like that. If they do, I will start saving for a ZD 300/2.8.

Re: Full size Olympus OM-D E-M5 RAW and JPEG samples to download

Páramo seems to be an UK company manufacturing outdoor clothing, while Paramo is a Czech petrochemical company (people are not very creative when it comes to company names) .
I like that T-shirt, too, by the way.

Back to the images. I downloaded the Oly Viewer and it seems to handle new E-M5 RAWs strangely (not to mention some operations are really slow), so I will wait with conclusions about RAW image quality until proper RAW-support is available (preferably by Lightroom update).

Paramo are the manufacturers (or at least the suppliers) of the fancy jackets that feature in your test images; their logo is visible on at least one of the coathangers. They are well known in the outdoor leisure industry.

I'll have to get one of those T-shirts, it's probably the closest I'll get to wearing an E-M5 around my neck!

Appreciate having these to look at Ian - - - - looks very promising for higher ISO shooting from these samples.

Viewer 2 crashes on me if I so much as click on any of these ORFs. This the Mac v1.3 - any hints on how to get around this?

Have you tried updating the software - there was an update a couple of weeks ago.
