Hello, I've got an EM-1, an e620, and a couple of FL-50R flashes. I shoot outdoors with varied lighting conditions throughout the day, often in partial shade, so I use the flash for fill lighting. The catch is, I shoot action shots (offroad motorcycles) so I have to use high shutter speeds - generally 1/1250. I also tend to shoot in 10fps mode on the EM1, usually in bursts of 4-6 shots. The e620 runs off of a trip sensor and only clicks off one shot per rider, but sometimes riders come...
Hello 4/3 users I'm looking to get the 35mm f3.5 macro because last year I took a few pictures of dew drops with the world in them using a 12-60 swd and I figure with the 35 mm I can make the dew drops 9 times bigger (1:1 vs .3) and more of the background context 35mm vs 60 mm. It seems to be a fairly uncommon lens but I found one used on sale here in Madrid for 150 euros. I tried it and the images seem adequate- on par with the 14-42's and the 40-150 I've used. But I'm a little hesitant...
I have a 11-22 lens that I find excellent on the E620, even at 11mm f2.8 it's plenty sharp and accurate . Although it's not CDAF compatible I have tried it on a 16 mp G5 and a 12mp Epl-2 with adapters . Results are good in the center but quite poor on the edges, and that was tripod mounted with magnified MF . The old 4/3 14-42 kit lens and the Pana14-50 were much better , so that i would not hesitate to use them regularly with adapter if I wished . One review I read had one guy stating that...

I use my camera for roughly three types of shot: Landscape/architecture. I lump these together since they both enjoy wide angle, sharp edge-edge, low distortion shots. Portraits. Close-ups. In particular flowers and larger insects such as bees, butterflies. Not quite needing a full macro, but close focus and about 0.5x magnification are useful. Those uses have been served incredibly well with my current Oly E-620 and the 9-18mm Zuiko and 50mm f/2.0 macro Zuiko lenses. Both incredibly...
I am considering getting a superwide prime lens cause I have no lens that covers this range in focal length my widest lens is Tokina 20-35/2.8 but I find it lacking in some situations. I prefer it to be smaller cause I am mostly going to use it when traveling. And I am also going to use it cross platform, mostly FF and 43 form factor. My cameras: Sony A7R - mostly used with MF lenses Olympus E-M5 - general purpose with AF lenses Olympus E-620 - kept it to use with my 50-200 one of my favorite...
