  • Anyone know how to remove the front element of the Olympus 18-180 lens?  Looks like somehow fungus has managed to start growing behind there on my 18-180.  And of course there's a spot almost ...
  • Hi. I was in exactly the same position as you a few months ago.  I ended up purchasing the E-PL5 and the two kit lenses, and I'm still very happy with that decision.  I didn't even both with the ...
  • At one time anyone interested in getting quality results would use film instead of digital.  Things improve. It would be nice if one of the newer cameras offered quality sound recording as well.  ...
  • Are there any review sites that take a much closer look at the sound recording capabilities of the E-PL5 (or other cameras) when they're used to record video?  Most of the sites I've seen so far, ...
  • The aperture mechanism stopped working in my two-year old 12-60mm lens earlier this year.  It's on its way back from Olympus Repair to me now.  Hopefully it gives me a few more years' of service ...
  • See subject. The blinking aperture is sticking at different times, ruining most of my shots.  I had to resort to using my E-PL5 with the kit 14-42 for most of my hash shots yesterday. Dammit. Anyon ...
  • At some point further improvements to the sensor are going to mean little to many customers.
  • This isn't surprising. The E620 is a bit of a noise-machine.  With my E620, I can see noise in pictures I take at its lowest ISO setting. dSLRs still command respect that you can't get with a ...
  • Actually I prefer to use my E520 when hashing / hiking.  I'm always afraid I'll drop my PL5 because of the lack of a substantial grip.
  • Sounds like a pretty good approach. Even better, if you think about it, the process of choosing how many sub-exposures to stack from each pixel could be automatically done by look at the value of...

  • My experience with the 18-180 was a bit hit and miss before I gave it up for the 12-60.  I've actually sent mine to Olympus repair at least once because I thought something was wrong with it - I ...
  • I say go with a 14-54 if (1) you were satisfied with the results you were getting with the 14-42, and (2) you can get one as cheap as you indicated. The best lens IMO to use with the E520 is the ...
  • Replied in E-5 Mk II?
    Thanks for your useful and insightful contribution to the discussion.
  • Replied in E-5 Mk II?
    I suspect that it has a lot more to do with ROI than it has to do with difficulty, i.e. the number of persons that will actually send their cameras into upgrade and the profit that they can make ...
  • Replied in E-5 Mk II?
    I suspect a car is slightly more complex than a camera.  And the last time I looked in one of these digicams, we're basically taking about a sensor and attached circuit board, so your comparison ...
  • Replied in E-5 Mk II?
    I'd like to see an upgrade offered for existing 4/3 cameras. You know - send in your E-whatever and for $250 have the sensor and processing board swapped out for the 16MB sensor from the EM10 and ...
  • The 12-60, arguably the most popular of those lenses, is not CDAF-enabled, and the cost of replacing that is pretty high IMO.
  • Thinking about it from a business standpoint, I thought a business' main objective was to turn a profit, which usually means attracting customers. I'm fairly certain that there's a sizeable amount ...
  • I own the E520, the E620 and several 4/3 lenses including the fine 12-60mm. I've been looking to upgrade to meet a specific requirement that the E520 and E620 could not fill because Olympus for ...
