  • There's an explanation for the skewed result of this survey Anyone who uses MFT is in the system for its overall smaller size, from bodies to lenses as compared to FF or even APSC, that's a given O ...
  • Replied in Bummer
    Must be your luck! I've owned more than a dozen Olympus bodies and none have issues My EM5II has been shooting for hours now , no issues whatsoever At least you have the Oly warranty and not grey ...
  • I love the clever hood design even though it gives the impression of the lens being head heavy Compared to the Panny 35-100mm it's quite larger and heavier but I get used to it by holding ir by the ...
  • Replied in My experience
    With any zoom is that I tend to use 3 focals the most , the lower end, the mid range, and the long end with emphasis on the lower and upper focal So the 40mm end on the 40-150mm gets to be used ...
  • Replied in Yes!
    It's important for 1) It looks good , at least the OEM metal Olympus hood 2) It does protect the front element 3) It reduces flares All 3 legit reasons to get one Anywhere I go folks would Ooh and ...
  • I bought this L plate for my EM10 but it also fits the EM5II I just bought http://www.ebay.com/itm/L-grip-Quick-Release-Plate-Bracket-for-Arca-Swiss-E-P3-E-M5-GH4-E-M10-GX7-X-E2-/201094691952?pt=LH ...
  • Replied in I do
    The PRO lenses are expensive and they need protection I use Hoya Pro1 or B+W UV + hood to protect them A review placed Hoya Pro1 at the top, better than B+W http://www.lenstip.com/113.17-article-UV ...

  • I have a huge investment in Olympus lenses For they're good, don't need IS , and kept smaller , lighter and hopefully cheaper I use the 75mm on the GM1 and boy does it shake like a cold monkey ;-) ...
  • Replied in Hi res caveat
    I've been testing Hi res indoors (in JPG) and on tripod at f8 using my ultra sharp 40-150mm at 40mm Hi res took out timer and IBIS by default which makes sense, and provides its own delay However , ...
  • Camera came today Since it shares the EP5 battery, it got to be used immediately without waiting for battery to charge So here're my own observations on top of the OP's Camera is still very small, ...
  • For now that I've most lenses I need, I'm looking for large aperture lenses and also primes and small for these lenses won't be small if they're zoom The Olympus trinity forms a complete and nice ...
  • Mine also in silver should be here tomorrow From the images, I can see it looks good (better than the EM1 or any OMD IMHO) The grip being optional is a godsend; I never like the huge grip a la DSLR ...
  • see local craigslist ad here http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/pho/4897509673.html Shipping negotiable , depending on where you're located Prefer to sell within US (or CA at worst) Email me directly ...
  • Even at this magnification on my Retina screen , the difference if any is too small to even discuss about Unless one's a pixel peeper Cheers,
  • Take the lens off the body Loosen the large knob fully wiggle the ring so it derails from the tiny pins on the lens Pull the ring towards the rear of the lens On mounting do the reverse but make ...
  • My usual workflow: Lightroom + Photoshop CS6 With Lightroom you can add any other plugin you desire Some of my favorites: OnOne Perfect Photo Suite Software NIK Suite (includes HDR) Exposure Photom ...
  • http://camera.itmedia.co.jp/dc/articles/1502/24/news156.html amazing details in the Hi Res shots Cheers,
  • besides the Pro zooms I also own these primes Since the 17 is close to the 12 I sold it in favor of the 25mm I can use the 25 for portraits too , unlike the 17mm I think the IQ on the 25 is a tad ...
  • Replied in Olympus 75mm?
    For close up, yes, the 45mm can do wide open I can safely state that even the 25mm f1.8 can provide you what you want there But to me the best would be the 75mm f1.8 , albeit at a longer distance I ...
