Good afternoon all, Having got into Mft through a secondhand EP-3 to complement my wonderful E5, I fell in love with the primes. I have the Oly 45mm f1.8, a little marvel, and the 75mm F1.8, an amazing piece of kit, complete with the Pana 14 F2.5!  I have now taken the plunge and just bought an E-M1 c/w 12-40mm.   I am still learning, but this camera is already delighting me, and confusing me, and giving me plenty to learn!  :-)   My question:  I am really taken with the idea of supplementing...

When I turn my Olympus E-M10 power on or off with the 75mm f1.8 lens attached, I hear a fairly loud clicking sound. It is much louder than the muffled sound I hear when turning the camera on or off with either the 14-42 or 14-150 lenses attached. A Google search for this issue turned up only one 2012 dpreview forum post, but the response to the question focused on the IBIS whirring sound. But, that is not the sound I am referring to. Since I can't find anybody discussing the power on/off...

I am feeling dense and confused, trying to use Live Time, Live Bulb. I cannot find a complete step-by-step set of instructions. The manual is useless, unless I am missing something. Most answers assume that I know how to set it up and how to make it work? Leaving on a trip, please help. Stan

In 7 months time I'll be leaving for an 18 month world packing packing trip and can't decide what lenses to take. The trip is going to be a mix of everything (hiking in the Himalayas, European cities, snowboarding in Japan, SE Asia....) as will my photos.  At the moment I'm taking my EM5 with the 12-40mm and the 9mm fish eye body cap (takes up no space and is cheap). I want to take one more prime with me, the 45mm or the 75mm? I don't want to take both because I'm backpacking and weight/space...

Hi all, I am looking for some advice on my next upgrade move. Currently I have a GX1 body, 14-42mm PZ, and a PL 25mm f1.4 lens. I mainly use the camera indoor or outside at the park for baby portraits / video and some occasional scenery pictures. The PL25 was a wonder when the baby was little and couldn't move as freely. But now since she has grown up and can crawl around a lot faster, I can't get any easy close up big head shots anymore. She will just straight dash towards me and start to...

Has anyone tried the Olympus 75mm F/1.8 lens with a close-up filter for macro pictures?  I am considering getting the 75mm lens and want to use it for multiple situations.  With it being so sharp and with a very good macro filter, will it be useful for pictures of small flowers and such?

Hi all, I am about to jump in and get a µ4/3 camera and lenses. The body will be GX7 and it comes in black or black/silver. Lenses to buy include the Olympus 45mm and 75mm  primes, which come in black or silver. I think they all look nice and would buy any combo. But I am more interested in whether one finish is more durable, less prone to scratching or scuffing or looking worn over time? Anyone with direct personal experience who can help and advise me? Thank you --call me Arg

Hi I have just purchased a variable ND filter for the olympus 75mm 1.8 and find that because it is a variable filter i now can no longer use the lens hood with the filter attached. The filter is that just bit wider than ordinary filters to accommodate the mechanism the makes the adjustment.  Is this an issue or do I return the filter and try not to save money by buying an couple of fixed filters instead?

Hi everyone. I'm ready to purchase a new tele lens for my m4/3 set-up (GX1 and E-PM2, Pana 7-14, Pana 20, Pana 12-35, Oly 45). Thing is, I'm really torn between the Olympus 75mm f/1.8 prime and Panasonic's 35-100 f/2.8 zoom.My question relates to the real-life situations in which you have been using those lenses, and not to any sharpness/depth-of-field/image-stabilization issues - as you've noticed I have both Pana and Olympus bodies, I'm well aware of what kind of depth of field I get with...

I was using my GH3 to record my mom watching TV and noticed some horizontal stripes/bands on the monitor and resulting footage.  I am hoping this isn't a defect of the camera.  Is this normal of the light emanating from an LCD TV screen?  Has anyone else run into this issue?  Would love to get some reassurance that this is normal characteristic from TV light.Here's link to my footage.  You'll see the issue more clearly on the right side of the image.https://vimeo.com/61397939
