yup its a minefield. I think it safe to say the new olympus is competitive in terms of image quality with larger and similarly priced cameras. And that is a good achievement. after that death by pixel peeping.

Comparing noise, a bit over the top don`t you think
I agree, so to my eyes its close enough to say sod it they are close I was just intrigued by how sharpness varied across the image. One part you would say wow that olympus is showing more detail, another part swap. Conclusion avoid pixel peeping it only leads to unhappiness
All the cameras mentioned will be better than the cameras I use. and the good news, these more compact cameras are producing pretty useful results. The compromise in image quality to have a small camera may not be much for some photographers.
Its very un cool to pixel peep, its almost as bad as train spotting
Ah that is sad I am looking at my new 41.1mp image and marvelling at the detail.

Er............ a guess - you have a Nokia 808?
Nah panorama stitch from seven 10mp images
I know cheeting
And I bet an EP2 (or equivalent) would do just as good a job.
I did a panorama here using the panoramic function on the E-PL2. It was late evening, and the light wasn't good at all, but I thought it was OK.
Cedric if you really want to lose the bulk and get something you can actually carry all the time, get an S95 or S100, as pointed out in a recent review:
Unlike many of the vast number of non-SLR enthusiast cameras recently released to market, the PowerShot doesn’t appeal to your sense of nostalgia with retro styling that harks back to the iconic Leica rangefinders, nor does it attempt to shoehorn an interchangeable lens mount onto an inappropriately small body. No, the PowerShot S100 is a proper traditional compact, with a proper retractable lens which actually fits properly into a trouser pocket – and a skinny front trouser pocket at that.
I have to say my compact is increasingly gathering dust as I tend to take my OM-D out with me most of the time. Once I get around to getting a pancake lens it could be curtains for the compact.
I look forward to seeing more of your great OM-D photos.
I was very impressed with the Chicks on the Keys and The Carnival Is Over and I bet I wasn't the only one.
Thanks, I thought the colours in the Carnival one showed off Olympus colours rather well. Yes, that's exactly the sort of chance shot I'd have used my compact for.
We look forward to seeing more of your efforts on EPZ: is it really nearly 8 years since you posted the last photo.......... goodness how time flies.
I predicted you'd say that so posted one after posting my comment but you're wrong about the eight years anyway as I've posted in group
We love you really Chris. Well I do anyway.
I lol @ the way you like to think you might speak for ePz as a whole
