  • I started of with the E-PL5 & found the controls all but impossible to use due, as you say, to the fiddly & tiny buttons & menus that were designed to torture the poor photographer into a nervous ...
  • Are you sure the IS is in fact working? Mine makes quite a noise when the IS kicks in, which I was told by members here that it was usual. Worth checking.
  • A couple of you have suggested that I just stick with the E-M10 & look at maybe a couple of good lenses, rather than going for another body, like the E-M1. I believe this to be my best option for ...
  • Are there 2 versions of the 12-40 2.8?
  • I have been looking at the price of lenses too, some, like you say, you could play draughts with selling for daft prices. This is one of the reasons for this thread, finding out if these systems ...
  • No, I am asking about the advantages /disadvantages of each system. That means lenses & a possible upgrade to a higher spec M43 in the future. I have the E-M10 only just bought it & like the way ...
  • At this point I lost the will to live. Good bye cruel world. :-(
  • I agree with your last paragraph. I am asking these questions to get a feel of things from folks who have made the change & what prompted them to do so & do they regret it. I can formulate an ...
  • I hear what you say about getting to like M43 first. I have seen an E-M1 with 5K clicks, with 12-40 2.8 & a couple of other bits for under £700, I think the lens itself is around the £400 mark. ...
  • That's good because I don't really enjoy doing too much PP. Thanks for that Don.
  • Alex. If you still have the 4 items I could be interested in buying all 4 if the price is right. My PM system may be a bit hit & miss on incoming messages. If so I will give you my e-mail address.
  • There has been a tremendous response to my questions, thank you so much guys. I feel it isn't quite as rare a conundrum as I thought. Would the acquisition of a E-M1 be a reasonable choice to make ...
  • Thanks Peter, I haven't used the E-M10 much as I've only had it a week or so, but as I get used to the menu's & buttons [so much easier than my e-pl5, now gone] I like it the more I use it. I will ...
  • Thanks Bob, I just looked at them. It seemed a very interesting discussion. I will perhaps, look at the full thread later on. I am, however, too inexperienced to be able to tell which was shot ...
  • Absolutely brilliant replies from all of you guys, I can't thank you enough. The extension tubes for macro peaks my interest. I have 2 macro lenses for my DSLR's & love using them, they are a ...
  • Thanks for a great reply Bob. I will read it again as I'm sure there are a lot of things for me to think about. It's mainly the commitment to M43 lenses, although there are plenty of Panasonic ...
  • Created questions DSLR v M43 Pros & cons.
    I have quite a bit tied up in Canon DSLR gear. Having just acquired a Oly E-M10 I am beginning to see the positive side of lightness of equipment & am contemplating an E-M1 also. Fortunately I ...
  • I agree 100% with your last point & do indeed buy most of my stuff from Wilkinsons Cameras.
  • Thanks a lot Chris. I am looking for an Oly E-M1 & this place, + a few others are selling it for, like £500 & under. Others are doing deals like Amazon, £899 with 'free' grip [£180 worth] + £150 ...
  • Created questions Anyone used SLR Hut?
    nyone got any experiences with this company?
