  • I really love my E-M1s.  I wouldn't trade.  But l don't see what you have to gain adding m4/3 with the kit you have.  If you want small inconspicuous shooting with great quality, you have the V1 ...
  • Yes, you can, There are many that will work. A very popular one is the Pocket Wizard. Very nice, well built, but I didn't buy because of the high price. I use the Cactus V5 works great. I keep ...
  • Just by dinking with it and watching how it worked.  Like you said, the manual doesn't say both won't work together.  I tried it on two different bodies.  Same result.  You take one step either ...
  • You can only make vertical OR horizontal adjustments.  If either is left off of zero, then the other will not work. George
  • Collin, Glad you're back.  It's been getting pretty boring around here without you.  Hope to see more of your wildlife photography soon.  (The cars were ok too.) George
  • Replied in Tele-converter
    Really does add up to a more compact system with equal or better capability. I've found the EVF very beneficial for most situations.  Only when I am panning tracking fast motion do I find it ...

    About 15%. Or, pixel to pixel your 150mm is worth 173mm on the E-5. If your E-5 comparison is to an E-M1 or E-M5 sensor, and your shooting with any elevated sensitivity (high ISO), you will ...

    As you put it "very encouraging".
  • Replied in Data check...
    No, not if you're comparing the 50-200 to the 40-150 w/the teleconverter.  I don't know about you, but I don't like to stop in the middle of shooting to take off a TC.

    Thanks Airmel, I missed that tripod foot. A little bit lighter and shorter as a trade off for a half stop on the long end and a full stop on the short end. Where did you read 3 t0 5 times faster?
  • The Pro zooms plus 1.4 TC will cost you a bundle. Here in America that set goes for $2850 without discounts. You can sell the SWD pair for what, maybe $1100? The 40-150 weighs 880 g. The ...
  • If your micro 4/3 purchase is going to be an E-M1, The 50 will work very well on it and is a fabulous lens. Selling the E-3 gets most of the money back and you have the 50mm f/2 for a bargain. If ...
  • Thanks Brian! Iview's thumbnail view works well too.  I use this part because I don't haven't been able to get windows 8 Explorer showing thumbnails yet. George
  • I've been using Iview as my viewer for a long time now. The ORF files open with Irfanview seeing a 4608x3456 as 3200x2400. Have you notice this too?
  • Thanks Bob! You saved me a mailing the camera away! My second E-M1 was doing exactly as you described too.  I ran the dial fast for only about 15 seconds and now it works all better! George
  • Looks like they only showed what was current at the time that list was put together. Other lenses not listed - 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6 & 40-150mm f/3.5-4.5
  • Thanks for the reminder Lucy!
  • Fabulous lens.  It's a lot of fun to get the super wide and get it right.  You're going to love it.
  • This only makes sense.  Though Olympus did not manufacture the sensors in their cameras, they set them up.  How each pixel in an Olympus camera is read is dictated by Olympus firmware.  Who could ...
  • Replied in Mine today
    Cool Northern Harriers Richard!  My wife and I like to go see the Sand Hill Cranes when they migrate.  Nice pics! George
