Low Light/High ISO

There have been claims that the new OM-D`s higher ISO`s is up there with the 5D II.

And the new IS system is fantastic.

For the Price of a 5D body, you could pick up the OM-D + 12-50 kit lens and the Pany 100-300 (equ- 200-600mm)

And still have loads of change.

OM-D + kit lens + 12mm f2 and the 45mm f1.8, less than 2k for the lot.

It's funny that, because there's an article in this week's AP that pits the OMD against the Samsung NX20. Just about the only thing the Samsung beat the Olympus on (aside from absolute resolution) was high ISO. Mind you, I suppose the 5DII is a three year old design - but I know my G3 doesn't come anywhere close to it in low light...

Yes I have heard some good things about that Samsung, but the overall package does not tick many boxes for me.

I know that if I had enough cash for a 5d 11 and lens, I get the OM-D, 75mm or 12mm and 45mm, total cost about the same, there might even be just enough change for the grip.

This in Pete`s blog is interesting, does adding a big blocker count as low light Smile

Thanks again, I though the cospla images were excellent.

When I talk about high iso I was thinking off around 800, I could go much higher witht the OMD.

I very rarely needed to go above 1600 ISO, probably why I found the E3 so good.

The OM-D can go much higher.

The 9th and image was taken at 800 ISO.
