  • Thanks so much for everyone's suggestions! Will check out task master and cpu performance.
  • All of a sudden Photoshop CS6 is operating very slowly.  I have Windows 7 64 Bit.  For instance, when I use the Quick Selection tool, it takes 5-6 seconds for the "spinning timer" to complete the ...
  • The op says right off the bat that he owns the 12-40 pro lens. Isn't this an excellent lens for portraiture? I own the 45mm f1.8 which takes excellent portraits. I'm thinking about buying the ...
  • As a French major in college, my 21 year old daughter traveled to Paris this Spring to spend a semester abroad.  As much as I tried to convince her otherwise, she left with only her newly ...
  • Sent it to Connecticut repair center. I also bought the camera with a 2 year extended warranty.
  • Created discussions My EM-1 fixed in record time
    My 9 month old EM-1 had a defective rear dial, not adjusting as I turned it. So I sent it off to Olympus a week ago and it was returned to me today, in perfect condition again. They also cleaned ...
  • Olympus M Zuiko 17mm F1.8, my favorite for street photography.  Small and inconspicuous, focuses so fast.  May not be as sharp as some of the more expensive primes, but overall quite acceptable, ...
  • "They cut corners"????  Your source for this ridiculous charge against Olympus? Every technological piece of equipment designed and built has "bugs".  Some show up immediately, some over time.  The ...
  • Mentioned in another thread this morning that my rear dial on the EM1 is not working.  Thanks for the link to Olympus.  Just sent in my comments to them and as soon as I hear back will send the ...
  • I've also been experiencing a problem lately with the rear dial on my EM-1.  When I shoot in A mode, sometimes I have to click the dial four or five times to get the F stop to change.  Will be ...
  • Nice and sharp.  A few suggestions if you want to perfect photo in photoshop: 1.) Bright spot in background to left of face is a distraction, taking attention away from interesting mask.  Darken or ...
  • Now you're making me hungry...for more great Olympus lenses.:-D
  • Re: "Olympus isn't able to ask for more because of the poorer image quality": If you look at the DXO mark scores, testing both the Panasonic 15mm vs the Olympus 17mm on an OMD EM1, the overall ...
  • keep in mind: Panasonic 15mm f 1.7  $599.00 on Amazon Olympus 17mm f 1.8 $399.00 on Amazon usually, now on special for $339. Is the Panasonic twice as good?  Your wallet dictates...
  • Pros:  Great for street photography as it focuses incredibly fast. Cons: Not as sharp nor does it have the bokeh that much more expensive lenses have. Conclusion:  Excellent value and performance ...
  • Replied in Winston Link
    If you like train photography, look up the work of Winston Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O._Winston_Link Photographing trains was his passion, and his work is much admired.  Just some "food ...
  • I have an EM-1, so my experience is solely with this micro four thirds model.  As others have said, to advise you intelligently, we need to know what kind of photography you do. For street or ...
  • Many responders have focused on: 1.) Buy the best portrait lens that you can afford, but 2.) You shouldn't overly rely on equipment, but understand that in most cases it is the photographer's skill ...
  • Bob Tullis: What was shown in the opening message to me are candids IMO - portraits as I think of them are more formal or formally executed, different than grabbing shots of people on the street. + ...
  • Thanks for the tip. i'll keep my eyes open on refurb site.
