I've run the numbers and looked into every alternative. I'd like to utilize my Oly lenses to save money. I love the E-M1 and would get another if they weren't so expensive. The reason for the backup is the potential to have to send it in someday for service, and my desire to have something reasonably good in its place. I have gone places--and will--that you've got to have a backup if your main camera goes down, i.e. Cuba, and other travel destinations. Just a quick recommendation will do....

Having decided after hours and hours of watching youtube to step into the strobist world, I've purchased my first flash, i40 today. I'm very happy with the compact size and the quality. However I was disappointed to find out that it's not compatible with the RC function on my EM1 (like FL600R). I know that the i40 can be triggered with the flash kit that comes with the camera. I tried it and it worked great. Spending times reading the manual and googling. I assume that I would need to...

I am experiencing autofocus drifting when shooting video on the EM1 with a prime lens. Even on a tripod with a stationary subject, in a studio (as a test), the focus will randomly drift out and then snap back into place every 10s or so. This makes it nearly impossible to shoot video in any real life situation. Has anyone else seen this? There is likely a simple setting that I can change, but any tips appreciated. Thanks

Hi all, I have a set of Alienbees sitting in my attic, since I haven't broken out my old Canon 5D rig in a while. But I've been inspired recently with my E-M10 and how wonderful it is to shoot with. My oldest son is now at the age where he has become interested in photography, so I wanted to open up my box of strobes and revisit studio photography. What is the preferred ways of sync'ing these with the E-M10? My Canon 5D had a terminal where I could connect the lights. Thanks in advance!

Every time I turn my E-M1 off and back on, focus peaking is disabled.  I have it assigned to Fn1, so it's easy enough to turn it back on, but it seems silly -- other settings are "sticky", so why not this one? I guess the question is, has anyone else noticed this? --Ben

Recently I went out shoot early 8am to 10am besides the sea/river, which I donot usualy do, and found dew/fog in the viewfinder of em1/em5, blocking it making framing hard or impossible. I never remember seeing this before... Is it a quality issue? Thanks a lot!Jian

I recently bought the RFN-4 compatible with the Olympus EM1.  It works for a few minutes but then I get a USB menu that pops up asking me to pick Storage, Print or MTP.  If I don't select one of these options, the camera becomes unusable.  Has anyone had this issue?  Can you let me know what setting to select?  Thanks.

I had a pixel that was dead on my EP3 and showed only green in most shots with a dark areas. That problem started after a year of use so I lived with it. I recently got an EM1 to replace the EP3 and after two weeks of use I have a red pixel that shows on dark areas. Not exactly the background. But if the area where the pixel in question is very Black the pixel shows red. If the area is white or any number of other colors it shows the proper color. Always in the same place in the frame. Is...

A few years ago when I had a Olympus E-510, I had this lens and it was a reasonable nice lens to have because of the reach. I now have the EM5 and the adapter for 4/3 lens and would like to purchase this lens again to use on the EM5, but because of the slower focus problem with 4/3 lens.... not so sure. Are any of you using this lens on your EM1 or EM5 and if so, could you give me some feedback on its operation?
