  • Replied in M5 Mk II When?
    When I got my MkI, I preordered through a local camera store.  Weeks went by while others were getting their cameras through online dealers.  Finally some came in, but I had to settle for silver ...
  • Replied in IS
    It really depends on your needs and what lenses you plan to use. Look over the Panasonic lineup and note which have OIS (it's a fair number)  If you don't need more than that.. at least for ...
  • As to IBIS vs. OIS, in body will work w any lens (including adapted, manual lenses) while OIS requires it in each lens. Panasonic has always been ...
  • Well, Olympus SLR lenses (OM mount) can be used, with proper adapter, on many cameras, since they have full manual controls. Olympus/Zuiko Digital (ZD) lenses have electronic aperture controls and ...
  • If you've lost power in the middle of writing the FW to the lens, you've effectively lobotomized it.  W/o the FW intact, the lens won't be able to identify itself to the camera, which means you ...
  • I've gotten parts from them in the past.  You just have to email them w the model number, they send you a schematic and you tell them the part numbers you need.
  • Replied in Low cost option
    Well, if you don't need weather sealed Consider the E-M10, which has most of the features of the E-M1 including Wifi, time lapse, live composite/live bulb.  What it doesn't give you is weather ...
  • not just the body what lenses are available that fit your needs and the size of those lenses. Options such as grips & flash Features such as remote control, video, time lapse, stabilization, dust ...
  • Just how much do you have to push the ISO?  Are you going to be shooting in normal indoor light? Candle light?  An unlit basement?  Fast moving subjects? I'll shoot by streetlight w either the 17 ...
  • If you get the 9mm body cap, I wouldn't leave the 14-42 home. Together they fit in a shirt pocket. I already have the 9-18, but the 9mm body cap is tempting. Hmm, remembered I had a cheap WA ...
  • Considering how low their price is... Could be out of a limited run silver kit that didn't sell?   (I noted they specify bulk, no box, so that would indicate a de-kitted lens) And why would they be ...
  • Replied in OMD 1 or 5II
    Well, when my 5 finally wears out (not for a few years yet, I hope) I'll likely go for the 5II What does the new model give me the MkI doesn't? swivel screen for one, WiFi, faster shutter, improved ...
  • Replied in Done.
  • Replied in I was surprized
    The better battery life of the 1 vs. the 5... higher efficiency components I suppose? But then the 5II is worse? Perhaps the new flash draws more? They all use the same battery, so that can't be it. ...
  • This may prove useful to someone trying to decide which to get.
  • Replied in OMD 1 or 5II
    For that lens, either camera should be fine... but the E-M1 might give a slight edge in C-AF for tracking moving subjects.
  • Replied in OMD 1 or 5II
    Features, handling, lenses... Do you -need- 40MP? (remember it only works for tripod shooting of stationary subjects) Do you have 4/3 lenses you will want to use? Do you prefer a built in or ...
  • Replied in Three in each
    missing too many challenges, but all in for this one... although I might swap one out in the morning.
  • Replied in New to Olympus
    My lightweight kit consists of the E-M5 and 17/1.8 plus 45/1.8  This is also my night shooting kit I may add the 9-18 or 40-150 depending if I want to go wide or long... or just take the 9-18 ...
  • Looks like a grip meant to be used w an Olympus Air, smart phone, and sight... doubt it would work w an OM-D or PEN. So, you've bought the Air to use w your iPhone so you don't have to buy a ...
