  • I bought a pair of Progo with charger from Amazon ($23.99 Prime) for my EM1 and they seem to work very well. I use the Progo charger to charge my Olympus battery as well as the Progo ones. It is ...
  • The only time I've seen that was when I was trying to get the lunar eclipse and I had a circular polarizer on in place of my UV/Haze (which I only have as a shield for the front element). The 12-40 ...
  • Really?  It seems to me that an equivalent lens to the 12-40 Pro (which I have and love and you say below you intend to start with) in the Canon or Nikon line costs over double. I concur with your ...
  • Took my EM1 & 12-40 to a local orchard yesterday.  The apple trees were in full bloom and the bees were busy pollinating them.  All shots were had held.  IBIS took care of my shake, and I tried to ...
  • My wife loves to garden, which gives me plenty of opportunity to try close-ups of flowers.  I posted these previously in another thread, but, it seems like they belong here. Oscar Schoaf's - ...
  • These are close-ups, not macros, and while I probably could have gotten the same shots with my 12-40, it was fun using my new 60.  I particularly like the first shot.  I've cropped a portrait ...
  • It is as good a price as I've seen.  I was going to order it from the Olympus Store on-line, but, they were out of stock so it was going to be a week or more wait.  My local camera store had it in ...
  • Good point, DOF of the 12-40 will be deeper than that of the 60  However, physically, both front elements were very nearly the same distance from the flower.  The min focus distance of the 12-40 ...
  • Thanks.  In this case the macro shows itself to be way sharper than the magnified 12-40 image. 60 f2.8 macro 12-40 f2.8 zoom
  • Created discussions Oly 60mm f2.8 Macro Question
    I just picked up this lens, largely based on all the great photos I've seen posted on this thread using it, and, some great reviews I've read about it. So far, I'm not that impressed with my ...
  • Clever title.  I'm wondering what they were bouncing their flashes off of?
  • Replied in Goldfinches
    Set my EM1 w/12-40 on top of a step ladder near our finch feeder today and used WiFi to snap a few shots while sitting in our kitchen about 15' away.  I probably should have used a faster shutter ...
  • Replied in No
    As Cheezr wrote: " The best way to raise volume is to reduce price." Happily, as anyone with a manufacturing background knows, The best way to reduce UMC (unit manufacturing cost) is to build more. ...
  • Love you bug & cactus flower shots - don't know that I want to get that close to a snake!
  • Since you have an OMD, you'll want their 40-150 f2.8 when it comes out next year. Right now, this list seems to cover everything: http://hazeghi.org/mft-lenses.html
  • Replied in Sounds Like Fun
    I enjoy looking at the excellent photos others post and hope I can make a few contributions. As of now, I've only got the 12-40 for my EM1, and, am pretty pleased with its close focus ability. ...
  • Nice shots from Antelope Canyon. Love your shot of Horseshoe Bend, what lens did you use for that?
  • Whenever I get a new camera (I'm on my 3rd Oly "Tough" and also just bought an EM1) - I always get a couple new 3rd party batteries from Amazon (and an external charger). Hope you have fun ...
  • Either A or P seem to work as aperture priority.  S and M it is up to you to set both the aperture and speed to get the exposure right (the camera tells you +/- ev).  In A or P mode, it also ...
  • I got the Fotodiox from Amazon to adapt my old Minolta glass to my EM1, particularly my 50 f1.4.  Of course it is manual focus, and, the camera knows nothing of the lens, but, it seems to work well.
