Hi-If lower ISO produces better quality photos,why does the ISO on the OMD E-5 only go to 200 unlike others that go to 100.
Forgive me if already answered.Still trying the search tool for forum.

It is the same with the Olympus Pens.

I have seen an explanation somewhere about the native ISO being 200 and if they provided ISO 100 it would not give as good quality as 200. But, sorry, I don't really know the technicalities of this! Smile

Basically, the native ISO of the sensor should provide the best quality image. On some cameras it is 100 and on others 200.
