  • Well, what is the purpose of your photography? Are you doing product photography for a client that demands the highest resolution? Do you need to crop heavily? Are you printing poster sized prints ...
  • Well, the old 70-300 focuses closer, but it can hunt for focus... While it is CD-AF compatible, I wouldn't expect it to focus much faster on m43 than on a 4/3 body. (It could be quite frustrating ...
  • The 17 is my favorite street lens... I usually go out in the evening, so the fast aperture is helpful, and I find the perspective just right.  (I also have the 14/2.5 which I find a bit wide for ...
  • I did click on the link... it pulled up a Canon Here's what I get from that link: Maybe the page varies by location?  Note this page shows prices in dollars, while the one you posted shows in pounds.
  • Couldn't find it... not even one listing for the E-M1 found a 12-60 for over $900, and the E-M5 (original) for over $1000
  • Replied in How wide?
    I think of the 17 as wide-normal, might not be wide enough for your needs...  Maybe the 12/2? But then again, the wider you go, the less you need the fastest aperture.  I've done OK w the 9-18 ...
  • Choosing between the 17 and 45, sort of like choosing between a 60 watt bulb and a focused spotlight (I was going to say laser pointer, but that would be the 75mm :-) ) So decide if you want a ...
  • I thought it was a cat. But agree posting here has several advantages, including EXIF (It was available there, but a couple clicks away)  and ability to view the shot 1:1
  • I don't know... neither looks particularly soft, OOF or shows motion blur. Some things to consider though: Did the 12-60 come w the camera?  If you bought it separately, it could be the camera was ...
  • Some 4/3 lenses play reasonably well w the E-M5 This includes the 14-42, 9-18, 25mm, 35mm, 70-300, and 14-54 MkII Non CD-AF friendly lenses will focus just fine, eventually SWD lenses such as the ...
  • would be to get the 12-60 again... probably my favorite E system lens. It doesn't work that well w the E-M5 though, so Ill probably wind up w the more expensive but smaller 12-40... Then again, if ...
  • Wishing you an uneventful surgery and a speedy recovery!
  • Hope it's something minor and they can fix it w/o putting you under the knife!
  • Replied in 3 in Comp
    but ran out of time to get something in the X... off to work
  • The 17mm came out before Olympus introduced focus peeking, so they hadn't thought to incorporate the electronics to activate that function. The 12-40 came out later, and does support auto focus peeking
  • The adapter you'd need, as mentioned above, is the MMF-3 (which is weather sealed) There are other 4/3 to m43 adapters, and if you don't need weather sealing, you might choose one of them... for ...
  • E-M1: beefier (built in) grip, only OM-D that will fully support 4/3 lenses E-M5 MkII: swivel screen, optional grip, high res mode, improved IBIS
  • Replied in Try Luton
    http://www.lutoncameras.com/ they have a lot of Olympus parts
  • The OM system was not a failure technically However Olympus was slow to adopt AF, and when they did they ran into patent issues. Now, if they could have developed a new AF, or even if they were ...
  • Replied in The Two Forums
    Haven't read every reply, but here's my take. When here was still hope of a 4/3 E-5 successor, this forum was not a safe place to discuss m43. Once it was clear the E-M1 was the E-5 successor, ...
