Hi guys, I cracked the screen on my E-PL2.  The LCD itself still works fine, the crack is just in the plastic exterior part.  I googled around for replacement parts, but all I could find were replacement LCD assemblies.  I suspect I'm just not using the correct search terms, but I don't know what this part is called. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

Its been a long time since I posted here...actually posted anywhere. I was one of the Oly users that switched after about the 2nd gen of micro 4/3rds to a Nikon system and with the exception of a brief time with an E-PL2 kit, I haven't touched an Oly DSLR in the last 5 years. Nonetheless, DR limitations and all.... the E-510 was and still is my favorite machines certain things. I recently picked one up on ebay with just a basic kit lens for occasional use and really quite like it....but I...

I recently upgraded from an E-PL2 to the GX7 and haven't been able to find a feature I really like on the E-PL2. On that camera I'm able to see where highlights will get clipped in live view (areas highlighted in red), and therefore adjust my exposure before I shoot. So far I've only been able to get the GX7 to show me where highlights got clipped (blinking black) right after the shot. This seems like it would be a really useful feature to have on the GX7, especially since it has two dials....

I have a Leica screw lens that I would like to use on my Olympus EPL2. I’m interested in some thing that isn’t too expensive, to see how it works. I have tried BH, Goggle, etc. to find an adapter with little luck. Keeps turning up every thing but what I want. I have tried the usual quotation marks and it didn’t help. Need some recommendations. New to the forum so this may have been answered before. Bill L

I have a cheap eBay FD to M4/3 adapter (branded DSLRkit). It 'mostly' works on an E-PL2 but there seems to be a dodgy contact - sometimes the LCD blanks out and can be restored by gentle pressure on the mount. But on E-M1 the LCD/viewfinder just stays blank. Not a flicker. The camera is metering, as I can see the shutter speed changing. I assume the presence of the lens is not correctly detected. For some other M4/3 models the advice is to set 'Use without lens' in the Custom Menu, but I can...

Recently I did a trade and got a second hand Pany G1 + an old model 14-42 olympus or MKI lens with it. Just did some tests and the lens seems to be a little sharper than the new on that I got as a KIT with my EPL2 so is it my fantasy or there is some kind of truth, anyway I will do an extensive test and I will post, but for the moment my question is about a kind of hard stiffness in its zoom barrel and in focus ring, it seems to me the previous owner had abandon for a while the lens and maybe...

I've set the aspect ration to 3:2 in my E-PL2, and was under the impression that I can always retrieve the original 4:3 from the RAW file (I shoot JPG+RAW). I've imported the photo into LR (5 beta), but it automatically crops to 3:2, and I can't find any option to get the full original. Any ideas how to retrieve it? Or is the RAW file cropped too?

Instead of more options, now, months later,there seem to be fewer. Gariz no longer seems to make a full case, Aki-asahi never has, the cheap amazon/ebay ones seem to be drying up. The kaza body is fine, but looks like it has a refrigerator box for the upper half. Any really form fitting leather full-cases out there? I have the kit lens now but am going to a Panasonic 20mm 1.7 pancake.

Today at lunch I met a guy via Craigslist to see about buying his Pany 20mm lens.  I have the 2 kit lenses for my E-PL2 but wanted something brighter for indoor shots. But for some reason, the camera refused to focus on medium- to long-distance objects after focusing at short range.  If you turned off the camera and turned it on again, it would focus on far objects, but once you focused at a closer object (4-5 ft.) it would lock up.  This occured in both Aperture and iAuto modes.  Can anyone...

Hello, I have an E-PL2 with a few lenses.  I'm interested in getting something on the longer end for shooting indoor kid stuff (concerts, ceremonies etc.).  I think I'd be willing to deal with manual focus or really slow focus (I'm not trying to capture action sports).  I also would like to spend much less than the price of the new m4/3 75mm. I'm pretty clueless in terms of whats available in 4/3 glass or other really old stuff.  What adapter would I need?  Any recommendations?  Point me...
