I know the E-PM2 has a touchscreen, but has anyone tried an LCD viewfinder with it ?I'm curious about the combination and I'm wondering if the physical controls are enough to operate properly with an LCD viewfinder in place.Thanks in advance for info.

Hello all,  I will try to keep it short. For a while we used a point and shoot and were relatively happy. Then the newer Iphone came along which shot shot equal to better pictures. We were fine with that until we had a baby and took some pictures and got them developed and noticed that they sucked. Or maybe I suck at taking pictures either way.  So that brings me to a hunt for a new camera. I basically want to be able to take good pictures and occasional videos. I wanted better pictures than...

I'm planning to buy E-PM2 and VF-2 or VF-4. I have searched answers to these questions and read the manual, but still confused. In single focus point mode, how do I re-center the focus point? Especially if I'm looking throught VF-2 and want the focus point to jump back to the center and don't want to take my eye out of VF-2. When in aperture priority mode, can I set minimum shutter speed for auto ISO? How easy it is to change shooting modes, in your opinion? Will I miss the mode dial?

Hello. I travel a lot working as a camera assistant, and I really like to carry all my M43 gear with me, I usually always carry my EPL-5 around on set, with one lens and a simple carry-on bag. The issue I have is that now, with many lenses and bodies, I will insure all the equipment and I want to organize everything nicely in a sturdy Pelican, HPRC or some other brand of hard-case before I take the gear photographs for the insurance company. Pelican makes thousands of sizes and models, and it...

Hi Guys, I just picked up a bargain priced E-PM2 &, without success, I'm bouncing around the menus trying to figure out how to switch off those irritating help text messages that pop up every time you move to a new menu item. Please point me in the right direction.

Hi, Has anyone compared directly the LCD screen quality of these two PENs? I've read somewhere that the screen on E-PL5 is better (not because it articulates) but couldn't find any more info on the matter. The reason I'm asking is that I am seriously considering the E-PM2 but it is now almost the same price as E-PL5 and while I don't care about articulating screen a better Q one would be nice. Thank you

My EPL1 died (LCD cracked after drop). So I am looking for replacement, with the better 16MP sensor. I a in doubt between EPL5 and EPM2 (price nor far apart).  The EPM2 is a bit lighter, but I am worried about "handling", would not like to dive in menu for setting exposure comp and aperture. EPL1 was not ideal in that area either, but I got used to it. Bas

Hi I have the EM10, I know it has wifi for remote control, which is cool. However, I really prefer to have a manual shutter release , don't need to worry about phone battery, easier to just plug it in and click. I also have the E-PM2, and I bought this remote release product "Aputure Timer Camera Remote Control Shutter Cable" http://www.amazon.com/Aputure-Control-Shutter-Inexpensive-Intervalometer/dp/B003Y35VMM/ref=cm_cd_al_qh_dp_t This works great with the E-PM2, just plug it in and press...

I just got an E-PM2 and have been using a GF5 for about a year. I'm trying to figure how to copy a behavior I became accustomed to on the Panasonic. I shoot in P mode, though I mostly fiddle with the aperture, often keeping it as wide open as possible without overexposing. On my GF5 I could simply spin the dial on the back of the camera to widen the aperture. See the meter at the bottom of the screen here: That red area is where the camera would consider the photo to be overexposed — the...

After mounting my new Bower 7.5mm on the E-PM2 and adjusting the mag and MF settings, I noticed a very loud noise from the IS when taking a shot with > 1/2s shutter speed. It actually sounds like the IS is reaching the limits of travel and bouncing off the sides! I realized the IS FL was set to 50mm, so I changed it to 8mm, but the noise is still present. Has anyone else had this issue? I haven't tested it on my E-M5 yet. I'm wondering if this lens is better off without IS given the short...
