  • When I tested several copies of the 14/42 PZ lens they all had shutter shock issues from 1/60th to 1/200th of a sec. It didn't seem like they could fix the lens and now there's the new 12-32mm ...
  • The reds from my E-M5 do the same thing.  I never did fiddle with the colors on these as they were macro tests, but this is the OOC jpeg.  Same feeling about the picture as you are describing. ...
  • There is a setting in the menu somewhere for warm color. Ahhh, google found it Turn off menu option G > Keep Warm Color. Did you turn that off?  Before I did everything was a bit too red.  That ...
  • The EPL5 actually sold quite well. It's the E-PM2 that didn't sell so well. So it is looking more like the EPL7 becomes the only PEN camera (unless there is an EP7 maybe) and the E-PM2 continues...

  • Luckily for us the prices over the pond don't translate via the actual exchange rate.  In fact it's usually closer to 1-1, ignoring the exchange rate altogether!   So it's probably more in the ...
  • Well, either your price is too high or you just don't have the market for higher-end cameras.  Here in Phoenix its easy to sell things as long as you price them right. Beyond that, go to ebay, here ...
  • Replied in GF1
    People forget that cameras that were great 3 years ago don't suddenly become horrible when something new comes out! Yes, no doubt the E-PM2 and others with the new sensor are much better, ...
  • The E-PM1 is still a good camera, especially for what you want to do with it.  You can get decent bokeh with the kit lens.  But a cheap way to really play with bokeh would be to get a manual 50mm ...
  • Depends on what you are trying to improve. Sharpness -> Lens Low Light -> Fast Lens OR Camera with better ISO range Dynamic Range -> Camera I noticed a huge improvment going from my E-PM1 to the ...
  • Original Raw developed both +EV and -EV in OV3, then merged with GIMP (freeware Photoshop) I did the same kind of thing, but for free with Olympus Viewer 3.  +1 EV for the foreground and -1EV for ...
  • Do you really need either body, or would you be better off upgrading a lens instead?   Will either body give you a significant enough advantage to warrant the upgrade now, or will the next ...
  • Replied in Circus Photos
    Here are a few:
  • Here, first read this: Robin Wong's 60mm review And a quote from the article: I haven't had a chance yet to wring mine out and I'm learning macro as I go, but it is a very very sharp and competent ...
  • Replied in Circus Photos
    I don't have one uploaded yet, but at the Circus they were not allowing DSLRs in.   But they didn't mind my EPL5 + Pany 12-35 HD lens.   The low light and quick movement meant that normal P&S's ...
  • One of the threads about the old Pany 14-42 pz back from when it was released for those who are interested: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/40684740
  • +1   Some camera bodies didn't show the shutter shock, but many (most) did.  Only a few "got away with it".   A bunch of us did extensive testing back when it came out and even with OIS off there ...
  • Astronomy is my other hobby, so I like these! Saguaro and Cassiopeia (the W, upside down at the top middle of the frame) Orion rising over my camper
  • I have the E-M5 and got the 12-35 f2.8 Pany lens (nearly the same as the 12-40 Oly).   Since I bought it I went ahead and sold my Pany 25mm f1.4.   The zoom is close enough and I love the ...
  • Depends a lot on your lighting and your position.  I took some pictures with my 12-35 at the AZ United Pro games.  I was sitting in the front row and at 35mm it was still a bit too far away and I ...
  • I just picked up the Olympus 60mm macro for m4/3 to use on my E-M5. This is my first time shooting macro, so any comments and critique are welcome. Here's my gallery of my first test shots. Might ...
