Although the internet is full of such comparisons, I periodically step up to the plate and provide another "camera this" versus "camera that" insight. I guess you can never have too many. Or, more to the point, I prefer to do my own testing, with my own equipment, so that I have a basis for deciding how I will use these tools out in the field.
So, being recently in receipt of the Olympus PEN E-P5, I decided to compare its noise characteristics throughout its ISO range, which extends from 200 to 25,600 plus a "pulled" ISO 100 that is useful on particularly bright days. I put this up against the Olympus PEN E-PL2, which has settings for ISO from 200 to 6400.
Please contribute what you can to fund my research and artistic activities. Every little bit is appreciated. Thanks!
