    Re: EM5 RAWs are up

    Are any of the low ISO photos noise-free? I would like to use my PL 25mm f/1.4 for portraits and landscapes. I don't need high-ISO because I already own a NEX 5N, I need a camera body for my 4/3s lenses.

    In truth all I have looked at is the ISO6400 hallway shot at night, so as it stands I dont have an opinion of low ISO

    using PSP X4 and Oloneo, both open the RAWs

    Is there a usable RAW converter for those files? The jpegs on that website are useless. Completely destroyed by jpeg compression.

    PSP X4 and Oloneo are working for me
    Oloneo offer a trial and its a small download, but if you push them (its HDR software) things get noisy fast
    Oloneo - HDR Software

    best to just use Oloneo pretty much as a RAW converter and export to your image editor in tiff of jpeg
    Ive only been looking at a 6400 shot, where noise is tiny grained and nearly all luma noise

    edit: Viewer 2 works as well Im told

    This looks very promising. I wonder how this sensor compares across the board with the GH2? first reports suggest it's an improvement!

    Thanks for the heads-up Riley

    Re: EM5 RAWs are up

    the best analysis Ive seen suggests about a stop better than GH2

    OM-D Read Noise - 1EV better than GH2?!!: Micro Four Thirds Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

    looking back at DPRs somewhat disappointing GX1 review, I think this is quite a bit better than most of us had hoped for
    and since the noise performance seems to have been realised, what then for the DR claims

    lookin good...

    Interesting, certainly, but until Lightroom or DNG Converter support the E-M5 raw format it isn't even worth downloading them or conjecturing about their quality.

    My image processing tools and workflow are a heck of a lot more important influence on my finished photographs than most cameras and lenses!

    likewise,
    but as it happens theyre working well for me with EM5 too
    which is dam lucky as I just went with PSP X4 two weeks ago

    the essence of what you say is very true though
    people would get much more out of their gear if they had more processing competence, myself included
