What is the crop factor an Om 50mm 1.5 on an OM-D?
Aug 15, 2012

I read in Gary Ayton's suggested settings for the OM-d, that in order to use a manual lens and IS you need to set the lens length in the IS menu. I'm going to use an OM 50mm 1.8 lens in manual mode. Does anyone know what setting should be in the IS menu? Does this 50 mm lens have a 2x crop factor and should actually be put in as a 100 mm lens?

Maybe I'm misunderstanding the whole issue and any clarification would be appreciated.

Thanks Mike
