  • Replied in The one for me
    ^ thanks. I seen that one and a few others ( FotoDiox & rainbow imaging ) all for around that price. it is worth giving it a try.  I seen some online for $50-$60 and a few hundred... Thanks again,  ...

    Glad you love the EM10, so far its my best investment as far as IQ too. i still own an AE1 Program / ( collecting dust though ) with a ton of len's I should pickup an adapter to use them on my EM10 ...

    Hi, my ECG-1 grip came in a few days ago. Love it! It does make the camera feel better, with either of the len's I have been using 25mm, or the 14-150mm thanks again
  • Replied in The one for me
    Hi, Great .  Thanks.   I often use the 25mm lens or the 14-150mm zoom.    I am usually holding on to the lens and camera. so I will be ordering it today. appreciate your input. Marc
  • Thanks,  I was completely surprised too how much nicer over the pen series. Only mistake I made was waiting 3months before purchasing it. :) i almost went with em5,but really also needed the wifi, ...

    How do you like the grip accessory? i thought I would need it, but so far it feels pretty comfortable.  And love the overall quality of build and photos! just curious
  • hi, compared to my EPL2,  Olympus made some pretty good improvements, from what I could tell the battery life is he same or very slightly better, the feel and buttons are very good. Immediately I ...
  • Hi, this camera is amazing, as I put in the title. and as far as m4/3 huge improvement from PEN series, and if someone does NOT want to lug around a DSlR , like myself then you will love it to.   ...
  • Created user reviews 1 word - "Amazing"
    Absolutely amazing camera, I owned this for just over 1 week.  Coming from 2 older PEN series Oly. camera's.  BIG improvement!  Low light, Video, Daylight, Art or Scenes,  or using the flash ...
  • Did you ever make a purchase yet?? I got a lot of help here on this forum, much more than the local stores.. was trying to decide to upgrade my older PEN, to an OMD or DSLR. I just a few days ago ...
  • ^ thanks again!  appreciate your help and everyone else here ! Marc
  • Replied in Well then....
    ^ finally got a camera! EM10 with a few lens to add to what I have. Menu was similar to my older PEN, pictures are more crisp (sharper) and much less noise at 1600 ISO compared to older oly.    so ...

  • thanks, that is interesting.  so the PEN, OMD series and other micro 4/3 are similar. I just thought the DSLR like the D5300( or T5i, EOS type ) , you would just use the screen while shooting video.
  • Replied in Pentax.....
    Maybe I do need to step back,  the choices were much simpler a several years back . I went from P&S to Superzoom P&S, to E-PL1 ( then after a year, I accidentally dropped it ) worked with Olympus ...
  • ^ they are slightly different in size , YES.  ( maybe a Ford Edge, to Ford Explorer ) I have been using my PEN camera soo long without a view finder at all / the EVF did seem a little weird , but ...
  • ^ thanks I know they are different, the EM10 - would also be with the Grip accessory and optional larger lens(14-50mm). if I end up with that.   main reason is I also have 3 other lenses I can ...
  • Replied in Just get.....
    thanks, the A77II is really nice.  but in my mind I have narrowed it down to, Nikon D5300 or EM10 ( with the grip )  .  both of these look comparable quality and features. either - small mirrorless ...
  • Replied in Just get.....
    ^ thanks, I know.  I am still considering the OM10 with the grip,  or D5300 now. with an extra lens they are comparably priced and quality ( seems to be ) Marc
  • Replied in Just get.....
    * went to camera store that had the OMD- EM10, It actually was really small - didn't feel right in my hand -  the thumb grip was ok, but just didn't that warm feeling holding that camera or using ...
