I have not used my E-500 for about a year. I turn it on and it doesn't work. Can I clean something?

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?

I apologize if this question has been answered already. New to photography I am looking to buy my first camera, for street/documentary. My choice was the xe2 but now I am considering the olympus system mainly because of small and light lens option compared to fuji. Would you guys so kind to explain why I should buy an om e5 over an om e10 or viceversa? Thanks in advance Davide

Hi All, Have recently developed interest in portraiture due to arrival of first grandchild. Would appreciate lense recommendations. I'd prefer to buy the Olympus brand, but would consider an aftermarket lense). I'm guessing that my camera-to-subject distance would probably be from 3 to 8 feet. (I suspect that a prime f2.8 or faster is what I should be looking for.)  Thanks,Russ

Hi Folks, I set my E-5 to manual at 150, f 3.4 and ISO at 500.  When the flash fires I get a photo at 50th of a second, f 3.5 and ISO at 500.  How can I adjust this the the setting I want? Thanks for your input. --Al Reeder

Hi Can anyone share his experience with me of the E-M1 running with SHG lenses like the ED300 and ED150 for sports and airplane spotting. Is autofocus working quick, snappy like on the E5 or is it unusable? Thanks for your feedback Best regards Martin --http://www.muehlemann-pix.chhttp://www.fotocommunity.de/pc/pc/mypics/1125341

I broke the plastic strap lock (is this the correct term?) and lost the associated slider on one side of the strap for my Olympus E-5. The camera's strap lugs take a 0.25" wide (6 mm) strap. I've looked everywhere I can think of, online and locally. I have found other, wider widths, but not what I need. I know I could discard the strap and buy a new one, but I really dislike throwing out things if they can be repaired at reasonable cost. I'd also like to make a camera strap so I need these...

Hello all, I'm hoping to get some direction and buying a new camera/system. I am currently using a Sony Alpha A100 with the two kit lenses and an additional old Minolta 100-300 lens. I also have a Olympus E510 with the two kit lenses. I am pretty underwhelmed with both. The Sony is "my" camera and the Olympus I bought for my wife. I started out shooting a Minolta 7000 years ago and upgraded to a 700SI after that. Once digital cameras started to become the norm I waited forever and a day for...
