I have a new Olympus EM-1, a retired E-1 and a Sigma DP1.  I can honestly say that most of my very best photos, not including action photos, have all been from the DP1.  Photo types were landscape, portrait, and florals.  Should I grab a DP2M while they are still available as retirement is around the corner and I hope to have even more time to photograph and maybe experiment with some B&W.  There are many good photographers in this group and I hope to hear from you. Thanks in advance for your...

Hi, I'm getting an intermittent "Card Error!" on my E-1. It will turn on fine and I can shoot for a while but eventually, particularly after it goes to sleep, it won't work and the card error comes on the screen. Sometimes if I just turn it off and then on again it will resume working. Sometimes it takes several on-off cycles. I have changed memory cards and it doesn't make a difference and the cards all work fine on my E-520. Is this a problem that others have experienced? My guess is that...

My granddaughter has reached the stage where she wants to learn real photography. I was going to give her my old E 500 to learn with, but it doesn't work now. So I bought an E-1 body only on ebay. It did not have an eyecup with it and I can't find one. It is a round one that appears to have locking lugs. I have never seen one. If anyone has one to sell or knows where I can find one, I would be very grateful. Thanks. Jony --JonySky

I heard a lot of praise for the CCD DSLRs such as the E-1, A350, and K100D Super. Some say they have better color rendering some say they have a "film-like look". I'm eager to actually experiment and test as to what these claims actually mean and so am thinking of getting a used 2nd hand DSLR with a CCD sensor. I am not considering Nikon because I do not have any Nikon glasses atm. The Sony CCD DSLRs such as the A350, A380, A390, appear to have the newest CCD (for a DSLR not including Leica...

Hello, I am happy new owner of old camera(2004) which seems to be well cared for (18000 clicks)... my E-1 has firmware for body 1.1 and for lens(14-45mm) 1.0 and got also 40-150 I and my questions are: -is it worth upgrading it and what would i get that would be better, for now I did around 1000 clicks and focusing seems to be OK, it is not so fast as my E-520 but I understand that E-1 is older -is possible to shut off the shutter sound confirmation on S-AF? -is possible to change from JPEG...

I have three 4/3 lenses that work fine on my E-M5 but I would like to buy a 4/3 camera just to play around with and don't want to spend much for that purpose, there are some good deals on the E-1 and E-520, the owner reviews I read so far seem to favor the E-1. I would appreciate hearing your opinion based on your experience with one or both of these cameras. I thank you in advance.

Aside from the Leica Vario's, does anyone know of any image stabilized lenses that will work with the E-1?  It is such a great camera, and yet, because of my age-related tremor, it is turning out to be increasingly difficult for me to use.   --PNH

I just got back from a trip to Yosemite where I took my E-1.  With all the trees, mountains, and bright sun, lighting can be very tricky.  I am using Olympus Viewer 3, but I find I have a choice of either properly exposing the sky and leaving the ground too dark or properly exposing the ground and blowing out the sky. Here are some examples.  In the first image, I find that cloud in the middle very annoying. And again, the clouds.... There are many images with issues like this.  I shot in...
