Would have loved to try the E-M5's ISO25600 on that.

My last camera was a Canon 40D DSLR and it actually was easier to use than my E-PL2. The top LCD screen in addition to the rear screen makes a big difference. Some times I wish I would have just kept it instead of getting the E-PL2 and a few lenses. I just didn't like lugging the heavy gear around.

If ever there was a place made for ISO 25600, the Catacombes is it.

To me that seems like it would be very noisy. How well does the Oly filter clean the noise up?

Probably not as well as the noise filter set in ACR would to the raw file. It LOOKS to me like ISO 3200, or maybe ISO 6400 in the right kind of light, is about the practical limit of JPEG capture with the E-M5, which is pretty darn good compared to what we've had to now.

If you want to get the shot...

I'd take some lower ISO shots and then one high one.

A monopod would be my choice for low light shots. I was able to get pretty long exposures steady with my monopod in the slot canyon tour we did. I have a bogen juniomonopod and find it is small enough to tuck under the flap of my camera bag and it was pretty easily carried all day... just my. 02

For the first time I tried my 500mm Catadioptric (mirror reflex) lens on my E-M5 yesterday, and I did it with IS set to engage when you half-press the shutter release.

Anyway as I' looking through the viewfinder the image is shaking, until I half-pressed the shutter realease and then everything suddenly went still...it was neat.

Managed down to 1/25th, but that's only one stop more than I managed without IS.
