The E-M5 is 5 years old so I am guessing the E-M1.2 is about 2 stops better. Plus at least a 1 stop improvement in IBIS.

Check out the DXO Mark sensor ratings/score and noise performance on these 3 cameras:

https://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Olympus-OM-D-E-M1-Mark-II-versus-Canon-EOS-80D-versus-Olympus-OM-D-E-M5___1136_1076_793


It's nice to see progress being made by Olympus, but since you put that DXO chart Bobby, the whole story should be told. Those ISO numbers where Olympus scores 1312 ISO versus the Five year old E-M5 are 2/3 of a stop better is sensor iso sensitivity.

To be unbiased and shed full light on the numbers (pardon the pun) It must be noted that when the sensitivity is set for the Canon at iso 1600, it turns out, under testing to be an actual sensitivity of 1088. In contrast a true sensitivity of the OM-D EM-1 mkii, is only iso 688 for Olympus.

So what the new flagship shoots when you set the iso to 1600 is actually less than half the iso value. At iso 6400 the real value is 2797. I won't speculate why Olympus is always so far off the stated values but I've always noticed it when switching from one to another. of my three brand systems. It's not apples to apples, not even close.

My personal standard for the OM-D E5 is iso 1600, which is actually about iso 800 in reality. So it's nice to see progress, but as low light machines, the full numbers don't paint Olympus in flattering light. That's the reality DXO shows, though who cares really if the results are good enough for the prospective owner, seeing as life is always about trade offs.

Fortunately noise reduction is getting better and better and the best shots normally still require good light.
