I'm shopping for a travel camera at the moment, and basically I'm trying to decide between two different kit offers for the Olympus OM-D E-M10. I'll either get the "M.Zuiko digital 14-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 II" (which supposedly has quite good IQ even though it's a superzoom) or a combined "M.Zuiko 14-42mm EZ + M.Zuiko 40-150mm" kit. What do you think would be important considerations? I'm a beginner, but not really a fan of electronic zoom, even though the pancake lens would of course make the...

Hi, new poster to this forum, but long time reader. As some background, I have an E-M1 that is a little over a year old, so it is out of warranty. This last week, I was out in a light rain shooting with my E-M1. I thought, "No sweat, this what this camera was designed to do". And, indeed, it performed very well. However when I got home, it would not turn on with the on/off switch! I changed to a fresh battery, same thing. I started just randomly pressing buttons, and after pressing the...

Ever since the announcement of the A7R II, I've been thinking about choosing it over the upcoming Cnon 5D Mark IV as the upgrade to my 5D Mark III. But one concern I have is over the lens choices.  I love the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L II as a great all-around lens. I also love the Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 lens on my E-M1 for the same reason. I've always loved the convenience and image quality of high-end standard zoom lenses, so I'd like to have something similar if I do end up going with the A7R...

I took this today. This is just a test shot from the beginning of my shoot. I was shooting in RAW but made a JPEG to see how the photo came out all the way zoomed in. I didn't notice until importing into lightroom but there are some weird artifact lines on her face. These lines are in all the JPEGs I made with in camera raw processing today. The JPEG has zero adjustments in LR only a crop. And actually considering the quality of the light I am not super happy with my raws either, but it they...

I am looking at the gx8 and em5 mark II. Currently I shoot on a gx7 with the evf set to 4:3 I know the gx7 magnification is 0.7x and the em5 mark 2 is 0.74, while the gx8 is 0.77x How big of a difference is this really? I know in 4:3 the gx7 one is smaller than 0.7x  can anyone that understands the sizes and how they relate to eachother tell how much extra surface are there really is between these evfs? It matters to me as I only use manual lenses and while I do fine on my gx7 a bigger evf...

Hello, fellow image-creators: Bought and am now familiarizing myself with the joys of owning a new Olympus OM-D EM-1.  I've watched some YouTube videos so far but wanted to inquire of the forum.  In addition to the book produced by the deities at Mt Olympus, which work between between Darrell Young's Mastering the Olympus OM-D EM-1 and David Busch's Olympus OM-D EM-1 Guide to Digital Photography would you recommend and why? Thanks in advance for your responses!

Has anyone noticed that if set (Gear-*C Release) in the "Normal" position you have no lag time when pressing shutter button. Then if you switch to "Short" there is a delay after pressing the shutter butter. Is there a mistake in all of the manuals and custom setting information out there or is it my camera or am I reading the information wrong? --Frank S Chehhttp://chehartphotography.smugmug.com
