Shooting these images under dull conditions does however bring home one of this cameras great strengths. To get a decent shutter speed and depth of field I used ISO 400, 640 and 800. The first two are still amazingly clean and look like ISO 100 on any other camera. Its only at ISO 800 that the first small signs of graininess / luminance noise start to appear. In terms of comparisons, ISO 800 looks like ISO 200 on a Panasonic GX1 and / or a Sony NEX-7. So there seems to be a two-stop advantage in terms of the clarity of the image over both those camera. Remember this is still without an AA filter, so these images shot on jpgs. are still very sharp.
This is what I hoped and expected to see when I decided to buy the camera, and certainly helps me cope with its "eccentricities".
