Currently I do have E-520 which mostly I use with Sigma 50-500 lense. I would like to get used with low mileage either E-3 or E-5. E-3 body I could get for ~ $300 E-5 would be ~800 or more. Any suggestion? reasons? Thanks in advance.

Hello, I haven't posted here in many years but I recall the incredible amount of knowledge you members had on camera's and lenses and basically built my inventory based on your recommendations. I have been using the Olympus brands since the beginning having (and don't laugh) the E1, E300, e520 and the lenses ranging from the 50-200MM, 50MM, 14-54MM, 11-22MM, converters  and whatever came with the kits. I still use all of them and I am quite happy, use the 14-54 as my walkabout lens, it rarely...

Hi folks. Was thinking of getting an inexpensive (read: cheap) ;-) Four Thirds camera body to use with my Zuiko 35mm f/3.5 macro, and a couple of kit lenses. My E500 is unfortunately falling apart and next to inoperable. Saw a used E1 going for $75 and an E520 for $144 off eBay. Any suggestions? Doesn't have to be an Oly. Thanks in advance.

A problem developed this afternoon while using my 35mm macro lens. I was taking some closeups in the garden I think at f8 and after each shutter click the view in the OVF got darker and darker. It seems that the aperture is now at its smallest opening (f22) and won't change from that setting. I was using the E-1 at the time and then tried it on the E-520 and it remained at f22. Nothing I did on either camera would change the opening on the lens (even though the readout on the camera was...

I have been reading and reading and it appears I will be limited on some features using my old FT lenses on the EM1. For example:   37 instead of 81 AF points to choose from.  (no big deal for me coming from the e520 with a whole 3 focus points lol, but still an interesting fact) and  No Auto continuous focus when in movie mode, a bit of a bigger deal since I'lll wager that I get better video from this camera than my cellphone at least! But there's other factors in choosing the next lens...

A good bag for E-520 with Sigma 50-500 attached. Any suggestions? Also, a monopod. Thanks in advance, Gintaras

Hi, Looking at flashes for my 520. Is it worth getting an olympus branded one or are 3rd party ones ok? I was looking at this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yongnuo-Upgraded-Flash-Speedlite-YN-560-II-for-Nikon-Canon-Pentax-Olympus-Camera-/111289200320?pt=UK_CamerasPhoto_CameraAccessories_CameraFlashUnits_JN&hash=item19e95a6ec0 But not sure if the camera can control it. In the book it says that it can only control specially designed flashes

I have been impressed by the various reviews of the EM5 noise levels: reviewers being happy with 3200 and even 6400. This I hoped would provide me with an increase of around 3-4 stops above my E520. (I wish to use my 70-300 on an EM10 (not yet on dxo) at higher shutter speeds than I can at the moment on my E520 so a useful high ISO is important) The dxo graphs: (select measurements - SNR...

Hi, I have just heard that the aurora borealis is going to be visible tonight. (cloud cover not withstanding) tonight in my area. This is a very rare ocutrance this far south.

I am going to try and get out in the country away from extraneous light. Can any of you recommend what settings i should do on my camera. I was thinking shutter priority...

Hi, I have been playing with the metering options in the camera, As i am trying to learn i thought it was be useful to see the metering readings in the eyepiece all the time even in A and S modes when it is doing it for me. So I can see what it is picking to use as a reference. Is there an option to do that. I have looked through the book but been unable to find it. Thanks Steve
