  • Replied in E-520 Menu
    The E520 cannot do a highlight/shadow overlay on Live Preview. Only on reviewing images already taken.
  • Thanks for that.  Guess what - almost all the filters I have are the Hoyas mentioned in that article :-).  The only one that isn't a Hoya is a Tiffen that I've got on the 14-42mm, which I wasn't ...
  • That's why I'm kind of leaning towards the silver version.  I suspect such wear would be a lot less noticeable.
  • Created discussion thread Black or Silver...??
    The possibility may have arisen for me to purchase a new camera and I'm looking at the EM5-II as the best option.   I need to settle on the color.  Of course black and silver are the two options.  ...
  • Same here. Oh, some years ago I did do a comparison of lens with filter vs. lens without to see what the impact actually would be.  Basically took both photos, XOR'd them on CorelPP, then did a ...
  • Same here. I don't use a neck strap with my E-PL5, and I wish it had a FAS instead of its tilting screen. As for frailty, the FAS on my E620 still works fine after multiple hashes with that ...
  • I have the E620 and I made the "jump" to the E-PL5 with those two lenses.  The E-PL6 is exactly the same size as the E-PL5, and quite a bit smaller than the E620, with some of the controls in ...
  • Replied in FAS for me
    I have a camera with a FAS (the E620) and the tilt-only screen (the E-PL5).  I much prefer a FAS, by a significant margin.  For the reasons previously mentioned, and for the fact that you can fold ...
  • There's also a u4/3 lens that will give him 14-150, which removes the need for two lenses.  It also uses the same filter sizes as the old 4/3s 14-42, 40-150 and 70-300 lenses, which makes it easy ...
  • How is the E-PL5 inferior to E-PL6?
  • I've run into the same problem with my E-PL5.  I found a possible solution - disable the arrow keys for those particular times when actually getting a good picture is more important than being ...
  • While the cost of replacing the front element may be about the same as the cost of a "high end" filter, I think the inconvenience of having to send said lens off for repair and being without it...

  • I just received this hood, and yes, it's a very good one.  Can't wait to put it to use on my next hash.  I lost a few pictures from my last one because something had smudged the lens a bit and I ...
  • I have four cameras from Oly.  Three of them have been sent for repairs (one of them twice), and the last one, an E-PL5, has given notice that its turn has come - the LCD screen stops displaying ...
  • If you're referring to their web site, that's another thing that annoys me.  It won't accept purchases from anyone who does not actually have a billing address in the US, even if you're paying by ...
  • I'm hoping to solve that particular problem (if it arises) by just turning the LCD so it faces into the camera.  The EM5II offers that. Unfortunately the EM5 and the EM1 do not.  And the EM5II ...
  • That's a possibility.  B&H have one at the moment for $700, rated as "8+" in condition. I will have to buy an adapter for it however in order to use my 4/3 lenses (in particular the 12-60, which ...
  • Created discussion thread Considering making the jump...
    ... away from Olympus. I'm a long-time Olympus user (going back around 15 years or so - my first "good" digital camera being the C2100-UZ, which I still own!).  However, the current crop of m43s ...
  • I have the E520, also the E620 and the m4/3 EPL5. Technically, the m4/3 cameras have a better sensor, which provides a bit more flexibility wrt shooting in low light situations, or where there's ...
  • Don't you have to include a screwdriver in your kit to remove it as it's secured in place with screws?
