    I'd LOVE to have been able to see the two images that the results on the graph were calculated from...

    Ya, me too. It's DR at low ISO where M43 suffers for some of my shooting. If this holds up, it's good news. The OM-D is nicely specified. I don't like the DSLR shape, and prefer not having to look at a screen to see my settings, but it's the final output that will decide me.

    In my shopping it's up against the Nex 7 and the new Fuji.

    The main reason which made me sell the EP3 was the limiting DR, "miles" away from what good aps-c sensors (X100) offer. So if the OM-D is really 2 stops better......:clap2:

    Olympus mentioned about 33% (as far as I remember) at low ISO, which is just a third stop. If it is the sensor of the G3 (or an improved version of it), which I expect it to be, then this is quite reasonable.

    LOL!! I actually canceled all my preorders for OMD and XP1. Although the local camera shop still has $50 of mine that is being held for a NEX7, if they ever become available here.
