Very nice jpeg's from the little Oly'... and the iso1600 "M+M" looks excellent- with little/no noise and great detail, without heavy handed NR..!
I'd like to see this little camera with a built in EVF- kinda like the V1... I'd rather have to add the flash as opposed to a viewfinder... but that's just me...

Default Shutter shock?

Hi,
I find this camera really appealing, something like I had my cc number ready, but I was stopped by the review on another site and googling around about shutter shock effect...
Really an unacceptable flaw for such a camera! Any clue on this issue?

Lumix GX7 gives you both built in EVF and pop up flash. Nice looking camera but sensor is still slightly behind the E-P5 and IBIS is only 2-axis.

Sadly,the GX7 is a bit pricey... and as you say ramcewan- the sensor(or processor) seems to be a touch behind the Oly'...

GX7 is $100 cheaper than the E-P5 for body only @$899 from adorama right now. So in comparison to the E-P5 it is a little cheaper but both are more than a want to pay considering a factory refurb OM-D EM-5 is $749 these days.

yeah that is still an issue although I think if you shoot RAW only you'll likely not notice much difference in the real world.
