I  am actually using an Olympus E-30 system and am planning to move into FF in the coming month or so and still undecided between the E-600 and the A7. I have handled the A7 at a Sony store and love the size-ergonomic. The EVF I could also live with. Main reason for me to choose the A7 over the E600 would be size. My main concern remains the lack of lenses, especially in the superwide range which I use a lot for architecture photos. I still have my old Minolta Maxxum 5 SLR and a few lenses,...

Hello, I'm looking for an upgrade to my E-30 for indoor high school sports.  I've managed to get some decent shots (too me anyway) of my daughter playing volleyball but she is now in basketball and based on past experience with my E-30, it's a lot harder to good action shots with this combo.  I generally use the 50-200 and sometimes the 50.  I'm looking at getting either the EM-1 (with the 40mm or 75mm) or a Nikon D7100 with an 85mm.  My friend has the D7100 and I'm sure it will do the job...

Quick search and didn't see anything.  Now that it has been out a while, anybody able to offer information on battery life of the new EM-1?  Any features that if turned on seem to significantly deplete the battery, for example WiFi?  And if so by about how much. I currently have an EM-5 and am generally ok with it's battery life but also had an E-30 which was much better.  Thinking with that big grip Oly missed the boat in not providing for a bigger battery in the EM-1.  Of course would want...

Hi,  I recently bought an old Olympus OM-10 camera kit including four lenses, of which 2 are Vivitar. My goal was to use the old manual focus lenses with an OM-4/3 adapter I found on Ebay on my Olympus E30. As it happens, the kit contains an Olympus 50mm f/1.4 that fits great on the adapter. The problem is that the two Vivitar lenses (one is a Series-1) don't fit on the adapter. I can't see why, the lenses both fit on my OM-10 and the adapter is specifically designed to mount OM lenses on...

Just got a primo E-30 through eBay and have a question hopefully someone here can answer. When turning it off, it goes through a series of vibrations and I suspect it is the SSWF doing its' thing. Is that normal please? Thank YOU! --mac22'I have duct tape and I am not afraid to use it!'http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn47/woods22man/E-1SHLD-2-Cropped-C-041709.jpg

Hi forums, I'm looking for a camera and lenses preferably between the 1500$ to 2000$ range. I have been shooting for roughly 2 years with an old olympus camera e-300 which is almost 10 years old that has been collecting dust in the house till I finally cleaned it and started shooting with it. During those 2 years I learned a lot and been using different cameras by my friends mostly nikons, sometimes canon cameras, occasionally sony cameras, and a time a pentax camera. I'm pretty much...

I have the 3-300 w/ Zuiko 14-45 & 40-150 and want to know what the best budget Macro shooting scenario /  lens or tube .. My knowledge of macro lenses is minimal except that they are the more expensive route and I am dirt poor at the present so it appears that a tube/tubes are the path or least financial resistance.  I tried the cheap "Crystal Titanium" Super Wide Macro/Wide Angle and was rather disappointed by comparison to the Nikon 990 995. My experience with tubes is only from owning a...

Hello everyone,For years now, I am using Oly camera's. I love them! I started with the E-500 and now I am using the E-30.I know the camera inside out and the pictures are usually also satisfactory. However, I now have the chance to buy a Canon 5D mkII... Together with a good lens. I could afford it if I sell all my Oly gear.I am quite interested in the upgrade to a full-frame camera. The sensor is something that Olympus will never offer. But it does mean I go back to the start when it comes...
