Quote:Hard to tell based on these samples. Oly cams are typically ISO cheaters, e.g. for the EP-5 the ISO 1600 setting is in reality ISO 800 according to dxomark - in such comparisons this makes the cam look better than it really is - by a full stop!
True, although Sony cheats as well although to a slightly lesser extent. According to dxomark, the OM-D is "cheating" by 1 stop while both Sony's are at ~2/3 stop. That's about 1/3 stop of difference. Fairly close.
