Does anyone have problems with their memory card being renamed "no name" every time it comes out of the camera? With my E-500 and E-30, I used multiple cards and they retained their unique names even if swapped between cameras. With my E-M1 I have tried with three different sdhc cards (given a name while connected to the computer) and upon reloading after the card has been inserted into the camera, it comes back again as "no name"  Could not find a thread related to this issue and I am unsure...

Hi I am thinking on getting an E-M1 as the system now really looks promising with the lens lineup and the upcoming one. 7-14 f/2.812-40 f/2.840-150 f/2.8300 f/4 Now, coming from E-5 and having had all my nice SHG lenses. How would you compare the E-M1 with firmware 2.2 to the E-5 combination? Is AF fast with native lenses?Is AF fast with MMF3 adapted lenses (SHG)Is C-AF more reliable than on E-5?Do SWD lenses now perform better with MMF3 on E-M1 than it did on E-M5? I am thinking on starting...

I recently got this camera from my uncle in Canada and I was really excited to try it out. I fiddled with the manual settings since I learned most of it in school (we had a dedicated photography class). I eventually realized my lenses weren't meant for close shots that much (one lens is 40-150 mm and the other is 14-45 mm). I fiddled with it some more, and I noticed eventually that the aperture reading was blank. it was just f-.- what it says on my viewer  It doesnt matter what mode Im using...

Having taken the plunge and bought the M-Zuiko 12-40mm f2.8 for my OMD -M1 -I am now preparing to list my OLYMPUS E5 & 12-60mm SWD on british auction site, to ease the pain- Do I sell together or sell separately.? THe E5 (1031 actuations, but no box) has been lightly used and comes with 1 x 64gb sdxc & 1 x 16gb Sandisk, 2 x BLM-5 batteries and 2 x chargers and 1x HLD-4 power grip. As a lot of you seem to be buying and selling quite frequently I would appreciate some serious feedback please.

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
