Can the EM-5 hold the weight of a 4/3 lens when mounted on tripod?
Feb 27, 2013

Hello everyone,

I am a real Olympus fan and I mostly shoot landscapes with my E-5 + 11-22mm.
However, I want to switch to micro four thirds, because the EM-5 really looks tempting and I like the smaller size.
The only thing that is keeping me from buying the EM-5 is that I am worried that if I will use the EM-5 with my 11-22mm + Lee Filter System (in total about 600 grams I think) on a tripod, it might damage the lensmount/camera, since I can't support the lens when it is on a tripod.
What do you guys think? Am I worrying for nothing? Or are there maybe people out there who use their EM-5 with 4/3 glass on a tripod with no problems?
Thanks!
