  • In the Film SLR days we had OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4, OM20, OM40. So why not OMD1, OMD5, OMD10 for the SLR style digital cameras. Although of course with the Pro, medium, and lite versions in the range ...
  • You can assign one function to a button. However there is one special function - the multifunction. This is assignable to a button just like any other function. The multifunction function has ...
  • Since the E-M5 is not at its best focussing FT lenses (it does not have the PDAF of the E-M1) then the question must surely be aimed at MFT lenses and here it is the lens that normally determines ...
  • When the E-M5 came out most people weer advocating the 12mm, 45mm, and 75mm. In terms of size (of camera bag needed) then this is pretty minimalist. Now the 17mm/F1.8 is out this coukld replace ...
  • I think we will see the OM-D "light" before the E-M5 II/E-M6. Firstly because Olympus have already mentioned a 3 tier range and secondly because, as already discussed, an E-M5 replacement would be ...
  • Replied in HG for MFT?
    The current 75-300mm/F4.8-6.7 is a good length to carry around but it is a bit slow. So how about making the front element a bit bigger and have: 75-300mm/F2.8-F4.5. To get our HG zooms for MFT ...
  • If you don't need video then you have an extra function button available.
  • My guess is no major change, just a rollout of some of the newer features to keep it fresh. But we might see the OM-D "light" before the E-M5 II. Same size as MK1, no built in grip Weather sealed, ...

    +1, if you wouldn't mind please.
  • Not having one I don't know but you could take a look at the Samsung android based camera as the android operating system probably keeps local time.
  • If you have set the chip on the adapter to remember the focal length then you should not be able to set the focal length on the E-30 as it should read the adapter to find this information. Dig out ...
  • µ is the greek letter mu, often used as a symbol to denote micro Hold down the (left) ALT key and type the digits 2, 3, and 0 on the numeric keypad (make sure NUM Lock is on) and then release the ...
  • I think the answer is because that is what Olympus said when the E-M5 was launched. There was the E-M5, an "pro" line (turned out to be the E-M1), and a OM-D "lite" (no details at all on this). We ...
  • The debate about whether the E-5 or the EM-1 is the better camera will probably rumble on but both will be better than your E-500. The E-5 is a big, heavy, well built camera; the E-M1 is a ...
  • Looks like a good lineup if they do it. Not sure if the 7-14mm would come in at f2.8, might be f3.5 to keep the size down. The 150-350mm/f4.0 is realistic.
  • 1) The top LCD information you are used to can be displayed either on back LCD or in the viewfinder. 2) No, just turn the LCD off by permanently sending the information to the viewfinder (bit like ...
  • For some it will be a viable alternative. For those with E-xxx or E-xx it will likely be a significant improvement and this will be a lot of people. For the E-5/E-3 users it will probably depend ...
  • Most people seem to like the Pany 20mm/F1.7 for sharpness. It has its faults like not blindingly fast AF (only fast-ish) and banding at high ISO but this should not be a problem for landscapes. It ...
  • Replied in Yes
    Personally I was waiting for a MFT 12-60mm/F2.8-4. Will have to see just how good the 12-40mm is.
  • As suggested, this price point is for the PEN range, and the lower end of the PEN range at that. I think it will come as sensors on the premium models trickle down but it is that "trickle" that ...
