Now check out our verdict!

The following images were taken with the Olympus E-P1 with the M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm kit lens. Unless otherwise stated, the E-P1 was set to Program mode with Large Fine JPEG quality, Auto White Balance, ESP Metering, and the Natural Picture mode with Auto Gradation (the default settings). Image Stabilisation was enabled for all these handheld images.

The individual exposure mode, file sizes, shutter speeds, aperture, ISO and lens focal length are listed for each image.

The crops are taken from the original files, reproduced at 100% and saved in Adobe Photoshop CS4 as JPEGs with the default Very High quality preset, while the resized images were made in Photoshop CS4 and saved with the default High quality preset.

The three crops are typically taken from far left, central and far right portions of each image.

Note: you may wish to open a number of galleries for direct comparison of detail and noise: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ38 / FZ35 sample images, Canon EOS 500D / Rebel T1i sample images, Sigma DP1 sample images, Nikon D90 sample images.
