  • Remember when Olympus claimed that 12MP was enough for most photographers? :-) http://www.cnet.com/news/olympus-12-megapixels-is-enough-for-most-folks/
  • Why just "good" for sports /action photography? I'm considering purchasing one to cover our hashes, which fall into that category.
  • Replied in But Camley...
    Agreed!  Quirks and all, I love my Olys!
  • Thanks for your comments Jim. As for what is a "hash", see http://www.grenadahash.com/hash-faqs. Some of my images are on that site, as well as on our FB page at ...
  • Thanks for the response, but I think if I'm going to get a new camera, I want something that's a bit more of a dSLR, with an eye-level vewfinder. I guess what I'm asking here is if the improvement ...
  • Created discussions Should I get an EM5-II?
    I've been pondering that question for a few days.  I've got an EPL5, which supposedly shares the same sensor. Most of my photography with the EPL5 happens at the end of our weekly hashes, and this ...
  • Does that cover ALL FT glass?  I am considering the EM5-II as well (just got the go-ahead from the financial controller), but I'm also considering getting one of those converters that will allow ...
  • Well, not so fine.  I found that some of the pics I took post-surgery looked a bit... strange, so I did some further investigation, and... That's a view straight down the barrel.  There's fungus on ...
  • Sweet!
  • Here's the problem - I don't think we'll ever see from Olympus a m4/3 EM* camera that supports PDAF being offered at the same price point as the E5xx series or even the E6xx series. This is why I ...
  • The only one in that list that will do quick A/F with all 4/3 glass is the EM1. It's also unfortunately the most expensive option. It might be cheaper to go with one of the cheaper options and m4/3 ...
  • Replied in PD-AF
    The Grenada-specific site is http://www.grenadahash.com (FB - https://www.facebook.com/groups/grenadahash/), and yes, it is a lot of fun.  Perhaps too much fun, even with the mud :-) I normally use ...
  • Replied in PD-AF
    This. My current main cameras are an E520 and E620 and I have a bunch of the 4/3 lenses.  Neither of those cameras cost anywhere near $1K when I purchased them, and they're the best fid for most of ...
  • Created discussions Cracking open a 12-60....
    Finally figured why the pictures taken with my 12-60 looked a bit "different" after I got it back from Olympus Repair (stuck aperture issue).  There's some sort of "residue" left on the internal ...
  • Just to follow up on this, I ended up taking a jewel driver to the damned thing and I managed to get the front element off, after prying up the little plastic ring around the front of the lens ...
  • Why not look at one of the Olympus E-PLx cameras instead then?  Same sensor, but smaller than the M10 and has the same tilting rear screen.  Should be cheaper as well.  The EPL5 and the 14-42mm ...
  • Well, I've tried it on a few hashes so far just to cover the after-hash events and I'm VERY satisfied.   I do have to keep an eye on the shutter speed to avoid blurred pictures at very low light - ...
  • I received my 17mm F1.8 last night. Boy, is this lens tiny.  Yes, I heard it was small, but didn't comprehend exactly how small it actually was.  Here it is, pictured next to a AA battery... Bear ...
  • Sensor-shift would be nice. IMO even nicer for me would be on-sensor PDAF that will allow my older 4/3 lenses to be actually useful on this body, at a price that puts it in the entry to midrange...

  • Wide-open, the 50mm with its F2.0 aperture will cut exposure time by over 75% compared to the kit 40-150 set to 50mm (which starts at F4.2 at this setting).  Interestingly enough, it should also ...
