If you're absolutely unwilling to compromise on image quality then spending twice the money and moving up to the bulk of a full-frame is the only way of gaining a significant step up from the E-M5.
Anyone know how to interpret the Dynamic Range graphs? I am trying to figure out how it would compare to, for example, a Pentax K5. The curves look pretty close to me, but so does pretty much anything I plug in.
The camera is built around a 16MP Four Thirds sensor, which all out testing suggests may well be the same one seen in Panasonic's DMC-G3.
I think this is a key comment:
"...a more gentle tone curve that offers greater dynamic range..."

Olympus acted similarly with E-P3 also. So we'll see when the dxo mark score comes out.
Yeah, I pre-ordered back in February. But canceled. Just put in another order last week, but doubt I'll see one any time soon.
Here's the spoiler now
