Hey all, so I've been using the mighty but miniature E-PM2 for quite some time alongside the 25 1.8, 45 1.8 as well as the Sigma 19 2.8. The images that I capture are quite fantastic but I'm realizing how much I want a body that has a bit more control and functionality as opposed to the E-PM2. Right now I am considering EM10 or possibly the EP5 kit. I know that the EP5 is much older and the same sensor technology but I like the looks better in addition to receiving the 17 1.8 and VF4 which I...

Normally I turn my E-P5 off and on for each shot, but on Sunday I left it on - only to find that the camera didn't come out of its sleep mode, at least not all the time. On at least two occasions I couldn't get it to respond, necessitating that i turn the camera off and back on again to get it going. Is this about my settings? Or is it the beginning of a problem? Thanks in advance for your responses.

As long as the shutter button is pressed halfway I hear a motor noise. AF is set for single shot. Any ideas what this noise is, a constant whir?

Doing my regular sweep of eBay, I see the A7 (and even the A7II, at a stretch) going very reasonably at the moment, and this has me thinking.  The real bargains tend to come sans kit lens, which is fine with me.  But what to go for, for a starter lens?  Since I'm very comfortable with the 50mm FoV (the 25mm equivalent, from Olympus, spent the best part of a year glued to my E-P5), this would normally make perfect sense to me (and would be automatic, if going with CaNikon).  What do Sony...

Hey guys I'm looking for a replacement for my Fuji X100S. I've read alot of reviews and forum threads and I can't decide which camera I should get. I'm selling my Fuji because I'm not happy with the sharpness wide open and the focal length. I have two cameras in my mind: PEN Ep-5 with VF-4 or OMD EM-5 Mark II I can get the OMD for 1090 USD and the Pen with VF-4 for 720 USD. Is there a difference in AF speed and IQ between these two cameras? And how is the high iso performance compared? I...

Nowadays even the smallest camera is capable of so much, it's hard to make the decision on which camera to buy or which camera to keep because they are all so good! I currently have an EM1 for sports and wild life and an EP5 for everyday light weight general purpose use. My wife has a GM1 so we can share lenses with each other. Now that my wife got the new fancy iPhone 6, she pretty much left the GM1 in the dry cabinet ever since. She said I could use it and I did, a lot, because it's so...

Due to a spinal injury, pressing my E-P5s shutter button is nigh on impossible for me so I just love the touchscreen ability for capturing. The prospect of using voice recognition though with an Android phone to snap a picture at any time is much more appealing. Attemps so far using the Tasker, AutoVoice and the Olympus OIShare apps haven't gone too well, Tasker is elluding my grey matter absorption. :) My immediate aim is to prepare the phone when I want pic taking session and be always...

Help:  I am about to start time-lapse photography on Olympus E-P5, how to turn off or dim down the LCD screen in order to conserve battery power. And, have 300 shots on one battery charge. I'm unable to identify from Olympus instruction manual. Does any one have an experience ? If so, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, George

Happily using e-p5 for a while now and have it doing pretty much what I want via mysets and SCP. Minor irritation that hasn't gone away: Set up is custom menu D, Control Settings: set to SCP on, Live Control off. In use, SCP comes up as expected when OK pressed. Pressing OK again to confirm selection clears SCP as expected, but displays Live Control. So another press of OK is needed to complete the selection. Not a huge problem, but doesn't seem to track with custom menu setting and the...
