Quote:Low ISO performance just isn't generally a problem area.
Calling it a problem area would probably be an overstatement, but the low ISO performance of MFT is still miles away from the cleanness of a full frame sensor (compare the E-M5 and the D4 for example).
The question is: Does the E-M5 really need ISO 25600, when everything above 3200 is hardly usable anyway? Or would a sensor that is optimized for lower ISO be the better option in terms of image quality? I think the latter is true, but it's mainly a marketing issue...
If you are happy with MFT results at ISO 200, then ND filters are indeed the solution to the problem
