  • As a current EPL5 owner I really like the look of the EPL7 but disappointed that a large grip can't be added to this camera! This ultimately stopped me buying the EP5 too. What a shame. Looks like ...
  • Thanks guys, yes the 9-18 looks ideal for landscape and your linked pics look great! How is the lens at the longer end? It's proving difficult to find used at reasonable price <£350 and new these ...
  • Created discussions EPL5 Wide Angle recommendation
    Hi All, Looking to add a WA lens to my system (EPL5 + 14-42IIR, 25 1.8 and 45mm 1.8). Recently, I find myself defaulting reluctantly to the 14-42mm more and more for the wide end out of ...
  • Simples. Get the 25mm 1.8. Its much faster. I've had both lenses and have two boys (age 1 & 4) the 20mm is just too damn slow and frustrating for kids, way too slow. You'll miss shots left right ...

  • taken with 25mm 1.8 - cropped to hell
  • I had the M2 but this year sold it to concentrate on m43, in particular the 25mm & 45mm 1.8.The M2 just couldn't compare when shooting portraits of my young family. I thought I could be happy with ...
  • I have had both and sold the PL in preference to the Oly. IQ is marginal between them and I preferred the 1.8 for size, closer focusing ability than the PL and the fact its an Oly lens on a Oly ...
  • Replied in Ricoh GR
    My E-PL5 + 25 1.8 fits in my coat pocket no problem.
  • My two cents... The M3 looks like an interesting update and having owned the RX100 1&2 alongside several MFT cameras + lenses I am naturally intrigued... However, my personal experience is that in ...
  • I don't have the 40-150 unfortunately but it is on the list to get :) Currently, I own the 14-42 R, 25 & 45 1.8. Perhaps the zoom might have been better? Difficult to get the whole snail in focus ...
  • Created discussions Macro with 25mm 1.8
    OK so technically not a great photo, cropped to within an inch of its life but it was the best of the 20 or so shots taken. I've never tried macro before, could get quite interested in this ...

  • Replied in Olympus EPL 5
    No way small world, Ffordes is my local outlet too! In fact, I was looking at a used E-PL5 in there just a couple of weeks ago selling for £250 (cracking deal) ,I don't suppose you bought this? blue
  • Out of interest, how long post announcement is a Sony camera normally available to buy?
  • Created discussions epl5 vs rx100ii
    Looking for some unbiased opinions on these two cameras and which suits my needs most? I am considering selling my m2 and sticking solely to m43, don't get me wrong the m2 is great but missing ...
  • Replied in EPL-5 vs EM10
    Thanks all for the replies. Having owned an EP3/EM5 my initial recommendation was the EM10 but having now considered the merits of the EPL5 package,  I think its extremely good value considering he ...
