Having an ISO 12800 setting available doesn't mean the camera is any good at that setting.

And I'm not saying the GH1 sensor performance is as good as ANY other in that range; the K-X is better,...

And I was just pointing out to him that the m4/3 sensors aren't really any more inherently limited by physics than the APS-C sensor, which is about all you will find in the under $1000 range in...

I agree, and the EPL-1 is clearly not as good as the GH-1. I think pretty much every review would agree with that. The DXOMark tests certainly make that clear. Sample photos are available from sites...

Huh?

You are obviously in denial, or not paying attention.

The GH1 does ISO 3200 as well as the Canon 7D.

The G1 doesn't, and is more comparable to your EPL-1.

That and fast glass, with...

The resolution of the photo has a lot more importance than the resolution of the sensor. A bigger number of megapixels, if you aren't actually capturing more detail, just means you have a bigger file...

The difference is the micro 4/3 is designed for the mirrorless cameras. Removing the mirror allows a shorter distance from lens to imager, and thus even smaller lenses.

The regular 4/3 lenses...

Shoturtle,

You are the one ignoring the physics, when you claim that one sensor size must be limited by physics to 800 ISO, while in the next sentence recommending people to use ISO 12,800 on a...

Again you keep talking about the G1, which has nothing to do with this, and technically isn't really even the same size sensor, since the variable aspect sensor has to be slightly...

With the G1 sensor or the GH1 sensor? They aren't the same sensor.

And it does fall behind a bit purely on noise past ISO 800 (at least in JPEG), but it also preserves more detail.

For the market they are aiming this at, I expect the killer combo will be the 14-150 when it comes out in June. Can't believe it will actually be smaller than the old 14-45 (and same weight).

The lens rodmap includes a 14-140mm f4-5.6 O.I.S. HD for 2009. I'm guessing the HD means this lens will be required for movie mode when they introduce it.

While I agree that the E-510 requires a bit of tweaking, it sounds like you may be tweaking the wrong things. For most people, that tweaking means setting Noise filter to low (or better off)...

Yes it does. The E-330 does as well (if you upgrade the firmware).


Biggest con is it's slow. It focuses by dropping the mirror down and then flipping it up again. So it's not good for anything...
