  • When Olymps Refurbs an E-5 they REPLACE the shutter and reset the shutter count. I bought a Refurb E-5 from the Oly store and the shutter count hadn't been reset. I sent it back and they Refurbed ...
  • Replied in Thanks
    I know that this post is way old but it pops up in Google for Series filters. Just for clarity I am posting this info. Brian has it backwards. 99% of series adapters are for a lens that has a mm ...
  • I never said that it would work electrically.  I said you can mount it and have infinity focus.  Which is true. Note that RichRMA said that the "4/3 lenses have a SHORTER registration distance than ...
  • If what you said is true Oly would have released the E7 and not the EM-1 for the US market. But they didn't.  They must know something that you/the article doesn't.
  • You can mount a 4/3 lens on a Nex E mount  camera and have infinity focus: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Olympus-Four-Thirds-4-3-lens-to-Sony-E-mount-adapter-NEX-5-3-VG900-6-7-5R-3N-C3-/400565292095?pt=U ...
  • In 1997 K-Mart was said to be going away. They bought Sears and are still here. JCP will be here for a long time as they have significant real estate holdings. What percentage of the market does ...
  • Created discussions EM-1 In stock at B&H
    I just got an email from B&H stating that the EM-1 is in stock.  I bought an E-5 instead from Oly but for those of you who want an EM-1 now is the time to grab one.
  • Ditto. +1 See my expierence with Olympus and my refurbished E-5. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52532761 I've been very happy with their service.
  • I'm a late comer to digital photography even though I bought an E-1 in 2006.  A few months back I started using it for the first time.  I was driven to digital due to my lack of a darkroom since 2007.
  • True.  With the Leica it's not parts it's the people who know how to service them.  The good ones are not getting any younger. Yes the DLSR electronics will die soon enought.  That's why I just ...
  • Replied in Value (E-3)?
    I bought an excellent E-3 6 weeks ago with a 30 day warranty for $425.  I'm happy. KEH is selling them for $350-$380 right now.
  • Replied in e-1 skyscapes
    Well done!  That's why I still have my E-1 :)
  • I think Olympus could have introduced the E-7 after the EM-1 and it would have done well.  I'm not ready to give up the DSLR format quite yet.  There's plenty of good Four Thirds glass out there ...
  • Anyone using a Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 on an Olympus DLSR like the E-3 E-5 etc? http://www.ebay.com/itm/ROKINON-85M-O-85mm-f-1-4-Aspherical-Lens-for-Olympus-DSLR-Cameras-NEW-/331062402317?pt=Camera_Lens ...
  • I sent the refurbished E-5 back to Olympus for repair.  It took them ONE day to fix it.  I received it back late Wednesday night 27 Nov just before Thanksgiving and today I had some time to play ...
  • With the E-1 you HAVE to use Olympus Studio 2.x to do the firmware update. If you contact Oly they will give you a serial number to use. See my thread on the E-1: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thr ...
  • I live a bit south of Atlanta so it's not too cold. I plan on building out my darkroom. I have been without a darkroom since the end of 2006. Here's what I had in my Florida home: Wet side: Dry/enl ...
  • The shade is for a Nikon S lens.  That is, a Nikon rangefinder of the 50's - S, S2, S3, SP, & S4.  The Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 used a 43mm filter thus the shade is listed as an S shade.  Very esoteric.  ...
  • Thanks!  I did that already and bought one.  But I would like to know what the USB connector type is.  Strange that it's not the same as the E-1 USB mini.
