    Hats off! I have just read the marvelous review from Steve Huff and he was absolutely spot on about this camera. I am from Brazil so the chances of me getting this incredible camera here are slim. However, I am quite tempted to fly to the US and get this one for me. I own a Canon APSC size sensor camera so I belonged to the micro-four-thirds-cannot-handle-noise-very-well group. Although, it is true, specially if compared to full frame cameras the images you published just showed how much the micro four thirds format has matured and developed. I honestly loved your images they are stunning! The details are just phenomenal.

      Hi Bruno,

      The noise performance on this camera is nothing short of amazing. If you read Steve Huff’s blog, I think he outlines that very well. The thing that is amazing about Olympus cameras is that they are just packed with amazing tech. One of the pieces of tech that I have used to my advantage is the In Body Image Stabilization. When you couple the most powerful IBIS on the market with a lens like the 25mm 1.2 pro which can capture amazingly sharp images wide open, you have a low light monster that is really hard to beat. The last wedding I shot was very dark and I used this duo to capture amazing images at 6400 ISO, I will have some supporting images in the next few weeks to show this! Now, understand that the way I was using the camera, I SHOULD have been shooting at 25600 ISO, that is the advantage that this tech gives you. I hope you find the opportunity to try the new camera to see for yourself. You won’t believe your eyes!

        Everything looks promising so far, including your photos. I am looking forward to seeing some of the results once the RAW developers update their software to include this new camera. As an owner of the EM1 and EM5.2, I am hopeful of the claims of increased dynamic range, as well as a little more detail. I mainly like to shoot nature and landscapes, so a little increase in dynamic range and detail will be great. Did you have a chance to test the new 12-100, or are you sticking with the 12-40?


Thank you for joining the Tracie Jean Photo family!
