Each camera has it's pluses and minuses, and if I needed ISO 10,000 or more I'd be using such a camera, but I used to shoot with ISO64 and ISO25 (actually called ASA in those days)...I've never shot on any of my Olys to the maximum ISO...in fact I wished I could turn down the ISO!

Having used a Nikon just recently (not by choice) hasn't improved my opinion of them.

Anyway, remember the article is from Popular Photographer...nothing more needs to be said on that subject.

Mike, agree with you about the low ISO performance, I think as there's no way a crop/FT sensor is going to acheive those ubher high ISO's of the FF cam's that Oly should have aimed at having a really clean low ISO sensor - it'd be ideal for in studio.

On a slightly different note I think Oly should have taken a leaf out of Leica's book and produced something along the lines of the S2, a super FT E+ system, keep the camera the same size as the E3/E5, lic the S2's sensor from Kodak, or get Pana/Sony to design and manufacture and pair that up with a couple of new high end Zukio's - versions of the 14-35 and the 35-100 and they'd be good to go. Aim it at the syudio .. fashion shooters or those that don;t need super fast AF and as long as they don;t screw up the marketing I'd think theyd sell pretty well.
