You can e-mail the company that's coordinating Olympus Europe's E-M1 promotion at: marktdienste (at) haberbeck.de. They didn't reply to my messages but I did get the...
I know nothing about macro photography so please excuse this dumb question. My wife is keen on taking photos of plants,spiders etc and has recently bought an Olympus EM-5 with...
I found the Meike tubes being quite uselesss becsause with most lenses you get a huge amount of reflections at their inner surface. Very bad design....--OM-D + Sam7.5, PL25, O60, O75P12-35, O75-300
I have the same "noise" when zooming the 12-40.
The lens is vari focal, that means the lens' focus changes while zooming.
But all current mFT zoom lenses give the impression as if being parfocal...

Hey Cris,Just wondering if you have tested with the new firmware, really curious:)
Yes, I did the test with the new firmware. Unfortunately the results are very similar, I think the...
Sorry, but i doubt their measurement. Maybe they got lost in the myriads of settings which influence noise or they used a very strange shutter time (like 60seconds where the EM1 indeed is not best...
When I have time I will go back and try Photomatix 5 on some of my favourite enfused images to compare but all other things being equal Photomatix would win because of its workflow...
Something else worth noting is that the little unit is seen as a 4th group, if the subject is out of range of the little unit or if you have it switched off so that it adds...
I am not sure whether you have the same issue I observed, anyhow here is wha I found:
The Olympus remote master flash triigers the remote slaves with a weak flash. But by doing so, it influences...

I believe he means "shading compensation", not shadow.

Yes, all current Oly cams underexpose with flash. Compensate it with FC +0,7EV.
This should cover 95%.
If you have some issues left (5%) while using remote bounce flash, read on...
So can one actually take star trail pics with the E-M1? It's something I'd be interested in doing, but there would be no point with NR on AUTO, since the long gap between...
Thanks for thanking!
And I see you also have the 50-200mm lens. I wish yo many outstanding photos with this combo!!
They have always been on par when NR=on.
EM1 has more noise if NR is off.
The new firmware is said to improve LiveTime noise, but for manual exposure I see no difference.
We had the same question twice today, here is my answer to the first question:

That's a fairly easy one to answer. There is no availability of the menu system in the viewfinder with Oly. At least not on the OMD series. It ALWAYS goes to the rear LCD. Its a...
Yes, here my report:
In short: The 75mm is a very good lens,
but not a very good macro lens ;-)

I have a Metz44 and 52.
Both work great with Oly on camera and in RC mode, including TTL and RC-TTL.
The Metz flashes have more power
The Metz flashes are bulkier and heavier
