    When I put the 45mm on my E-M1 it doesn't behave this way, even though the camera has flicker reduction set to auto. I hooked the camera and 45mm up to the computer and there is no firmware update ...
  • Perfect! Who would link flicker reduction with lens behaviour? Thanks. They should fix this in firmware. Douglas Brown
  • Created discussions Question: m4/3's 45mm
    Hi, I remember there was some discussion here about a fix in the settings menu for the 45mm's habit of continuously changing the aperture opening while the camera was powered on. Can't remember ...
  • Taylor has always been into photography. She has been spotted on the street several times with a large DSLR in the past. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if she picked the camera out herself. ...
  • Cross-Country Skiing? Seriously? I've shot the NFL from the sidelines and Indy car racing from photo holes trackside with the 50-200 SWD. I'd be very surprised if this lens couldn't keep up with X ...
  • Thank-you. Douglas Brown
  • : ) Actually, I've photographed Taylor many times. Accredited for up closed and personal in interviews, and each and every one of her tours. She's an amazing performer and a pretty good songwriter. ...
  • I'm all for the miniskirts and combat gear - if it works. Re-imagining the music in different eras and different ways keeps the art-form vital and alive to new audiences. Without different ...
  • It's not the opera itself but this specific production treatment that I found weaker than the other chapters of the Ring cycle. The lighting at times looks like they rigged up two shop lights and ...
  • Well truthfully, you couldn't lose whichever way you went. Excellent camera, excellent lens. Decisions, decisions. ; ) Enjoy the 40-150mm. Look forward to seeing photos from Scotland. My opera ...
  • From the Canadian Opera Company's dress rehearsal for Wagner's Die Walkure, a quarter of the famous Ring Cycle. A dimly lit exercise that stressed the 5 axis stabilizer and low light focusing ...
  • I think you should get the adapter and E-M1 first, try it with your existing 4/3s lenses and see if you can live with that setup. I doubt any comparison between the 35-100 and 40-150 will yield a ...
  • I have the 4/3's version. It's a pretty specialized lens. I use it with a TC for concert shoots from the sound board in medium sized venues, it's not long enough for stadiums or arenas. Also tennis ...
  • I used an E5 and LS10 combination quite a bit. I have to say it never occurred to me to use the LS10 as a microphone for the camera. As the last poster said, record audio and visuals separately and ...
  • Stick with micro, use your 4/3's lenses on an EM1, dabble in full frame if you must (but there's not much in it when all's said and done) I have a full frame Canon now as well as the Olympus gear. ...
  • I use 4/3's and micro lenses interchangebly but always on Micro bodies - mainly E-M1 and E-P5 with an E-M5 as backup. This arrangement does everything I need and photos taken on micro cameras have ...
  • Hi Paul, Only ocassionally when shooting static objects or very deliberate studio work will I switch out of the multi point AF. For any kind of movement, dynamic situations or everyday shooting I ...
  • My Digital Zuiko 35-100mm f2 focus's just fine with latest firmware. I do find that you get better results with AF and this lens on an E-M1 if you use the 9 point autofocus mode though. Douglas Brown
  • Actually, the same rules apply at the sound board as in the pits, and for Keith Urban we were only allowed the first two songs. So it was doubly disappointing to be all the way back there  ; ) When ...
  • Here is that thread: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53734157 Here is what I was talking about: http://chimeralighting.com/products/lightbanks/film-video/lanterns/ I actually prefer the Profoto ...
