  • I don't think camera sensors producing pictures that are too sharp has much to do with the style of the magazine photo- got any examples of the kind of thing you mean? I'm pretty sure the look you ...
  • My friend and I both had occasional lock ups with separate E1s, and it seems to be something that E1s occasionally do. However, ours would always recover immediately when the battery was replaced.
  • I also agree there's no such thing as a picture that comes out of camera 'too sharp', though there is such a thing as a picture that's over sharpened. There is always some degree of softness to ...
  • I think others already pointed out the problem here- your lens can only open as wide as f 4 at the wide end, not when zoomed in. You will always have complete control of the full aperture range ...
  • Good shots, I have the 70-300 and have greatly enjoyed using it on my E520. Apart from occasional unexplained softness that may be down to atmospheric haze, I find it reasonably sharp and ...
  • Ugh, that picture makes me cringe.. To those talking about washing the E1/E3/E5 in the sink, it's better not to push your luck with that! You don't want to give the camera any more of a dousing in ...
  • I don't think there's any need to use an aperture like f 11 when taking shots of the moon. Is there evidence such a small aperture is the sweet spot of the 70-300? I would use f8 on a tripod for ...
  • I don't know about Olympus viewer, unfortunately, since I process my files using photoshop. In situations where I've blown highlights in photoshop, I turn the exposure down and the recovery slider ...
  • Update for the benefit of anyone else who suffers a similar problem and might stumble upon this thread. It's not certain yet, but it appears I was wrong when I said that it happened with 'all' ...
  • Great photos, the 'cheapness' of the lens certainly doesn't stop it from taking great photos. It's actually perfectly possible to handhold shots of the moon with ordinary 4/3 gear, I was surprised! ...
  • Overall, the E510 is obviously the technically better camera, however, as mentioned by others, quite a few prefer the colour from the E500. The E510's out of camera colour is not as rich and ...
  • It has been my experience that Olympus cameras are picky with their media. My E1 would corrupt cheap CF cards that worked fine in my other camera. I had thought I'd solved all issues by sticking ...
  • I find that my E520 (I know it's not the same, but similarly apparently there's an 8gb limit mentioned in the manual) does not do well with my 16GB Lexar 200x card, although that may be related to ...
  • Technology getting better means that, on average, the average person's ability to take good photographs has improved, and the possibilities of each camera have been expanded. Which are good ...
  • As I said above, disregarding the question of quality, there's nothing with the reach of the 70-300 for that weight available for Nikon or Canon. For Canon I'm thinking the closest equivalent ...
  • I can well understand this. You don't always technically need all the features of a Canon/Nikon DSLR for your photography, and despite their age, cameras like the E30 are certainly good enough to ...
  • Did you like the EVF when you tried it out in the store? I don't know, I think that just my personal preferences and what I enjoy about photography would make it hard for me to like an EVF. I'd be ...
  • I think so, though I'm not 100% sure, it was a while ago now, but I tried out a high end Olympus Micro 4/3 camera of some sort. Half the fun is actually taking the photos as much as actually ...
  • Does it focus any better using contrast detect AF VS regular AF? When my E520 had a focus problem at the wide end of the zoom range it could still focus perfectly using contrast detect.
  • Regarding the EM1's focusing being as good as, or better than the E5, is that actually the case with 4/3 lenses, or only with its own micro 4/3 lenses? My understanding was that you needed to be ...
