How do i make the back dial stop making exposure compensation? I often press the back dial by mistake when rotating it, and simply want it to only change aperture and never exposure comp. whether i press it or not. Right now when i press the back dial, it always goes into exposure comp., and if i set it to have it be exposure comp. itself then it shows two different ways of setting exposure comp! Another thing is how to make the monitor show the current aperture of the lens, so i can see the...
Hello everyone, Although I've been reading DPReview's forums for a while, this is my first post on this site. I bought an Olympus omd-em10 with a zuiko 25 1.8 lens. Great combo, no problem at all. Then I decided to buy the 75 1.8; it's fantastic, but I've noticed 2 weird things. First, in manual focus (not that it's very useful, but anyway), it takes ages to go from infinity to the closest focus distance (and vice versa). I haven't done any precise measure, but I'd say I need to apply a...
I'm considering buying a 35mm equiv. fast prime for my m43 bodies. My plan is to shoot weddings with 35mm, 85mm and 150mm primes on three bodies - 2x GX7 and E-PL5. Most times I may be using only two bodies with 35 and 85mm. My current prime setup is 12mm f2, 25mm f1.4 and 45mm f1.8 (now is 42.5mm f1.2). I'm seeing three options: 1. m.Zuiko 17mm f1.8 - appears to be tremendously mediocre in terms of sharpness except in the absolute center 2. PL 15mm f1.7 - looks sharper, but I really would...
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?
