Here is a quick pop quiz for you. Lepidi Pierre-Paul from lepidi-photo.blogspot.fr wanted to know if the new Olympus OM-D E-M5‘s high ISO photos are really as good as it many reviews say it is. So he decided to compare it to his Nikon D700 at ISO3200 and ISO6400.
Here are the conditions:
- Jpeg directly from the housing
- Type of image: “neutral” for the D700 and “natural” for the E-M5
- Noise reduction disabled
- 24 mm full frame equivalent
- focusing on the body the doll Central
- auto white balance
- ISO 3200 and 6400
Which ones of these straight-out-of the camera JPEGs are from the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and which ones are from the Nikon D700. The latter is of course, known for its high-iso image quality. Can you tell which one is from each cameras?
More importantly, how does the Olympus OM-D hold up against the D700?
