I damaged this camera.  It was so dependable, but I cannot decide how to replace it with a retired slim budget.  I wonder about the new M-10 .. But there was something so solid and dependable about the E-510 . Now, my pictures are grandchildren and pets with flowers here and there -- both fast moving objects with continual reliable focusing and a lot of indoor shooting. .. I have no one to advise me now, so I am just "stuck" in reading reviews and forums.  Someone please give me ideas. I...

Good afternoon all, Having got into Mft through a secondhand EP-3 to complement my wonderful E5, I fell in love with the primes. I have the Oly 45mm f1.8, a little marvel, and the 75mm F1.8, an amazing piece of kit, complete with the Pana 14 F2.5!  I have now taken the plunge and just bought an E-M1 c/w 12-40mm.   I am still learning, but this camera is already delighting me, and confusing me, and giving me plenty to learn!  :-)   My question:  I am really taken with the idea of supplementing...

Recently purchased an Olympus OM D EM 1 with a 12-40 2.8 Pro lens. Have been a longtime Canon user new to the world of micro four thirds. It is my understanding that Olympus will be coming out with additional Pro lenses both a wide angel and a telephoto. Has anyone heard the status/time frame of either? Is there any issues or is an adapter required when using Panasonic micro four third lens one the EM 1? What are the issues when using legacy Olympus four third lenses from a E510 camera such...

I recently purchased a Lilliput 665GL external HDMI monitor to use with my Olympus E-5 camera. When I plugged it in to the HDMI port on the camera and switched the camera to live view it brought up the last photo taken from my card but will not allow live view, nor will it allow the camera to take photo's or video while the monitor is plugged in. Unplug the monitor and everything on the camera begins to function normally again. We plugged this same monitor into my wife's Canon 7D and it...

Picked up a used e-500 as a starter in digital slr.  Everything worked great when I bought it, but now pictures taken in auto mode have a blue tint to them.  The other modes seem to work fine.  I don't use auto mode much, but I don't want to have this problem "creep " into other modes.  I probably just changed a setting but can't figure it out. Any help?

I switched to Nikon a couple years ago but had a hard time letting go of my beloved Olympus gear.  My husband is bugging about it though so it's time.  Where's the best place for me to sell it these days?  Just craigslist or ebay or are there any Olympus groups online that have selling forums? E-1, E-510, E-30 50mmF2, sigma 17-50mmf2.8, and more..... ------Cathyhttp://www.cathykurtzphotography.com

an Oly E-5?  The Panny is supposed to be weather-sealed on a weather-sealed Panny camera. (The only detail of the Panny seal I've seen mentioned is a rubber (?) gasket in the lens mount to create a seal with the camera mount.) But since the Oly and Panny mounts are the same, and the rest of the Panny 35-100 is weather sealed, it would seem logical that Panny lens would be weather sealed on the Oly E-5, unless there's a subtle difference in the lens mounts or between what Oly and Panny mean by...

I'm new to DSLR's and to start I decided to buy a used one. I bought an E-510 and it came with two manual old lenses that I have to use with an adapter, a 28mm Tokina lens and a 150mm Takumar lens. To get the most out of the features of the cam I want to buy a compatible Four Thirds lens. I have found a few options but I wanted to ask: Given the two focal lengths I already have, should I go for the Zuiko standard 14-45mm or buy instead the 40-150mm? Or is there a better one that fit my needs?...

When using legacy lenses on the G1/GH1, I know the buttons to press to magnify live view. Is it possible to get the G1/GH1 to magnify live view when you focus? Is there any way to magnify live view when using legacy lenses on the PL5 or E5? On the Oly and Lumixes, is there a way to get the focus confirmation light to work when using legacy lenses? I am using the Voigtlander F adapter (for manual Nikon lenses.)

The emphasis is some gear as I have more than I really need.  Here's the plan: sell my E-5, 50-200 mk1, 50 f/2 macro, Sigma 105 macro (to be replaced by the u4/3 macro), plus the ring light and twin lights with the controller). They have all worked well, just streaming lining by gear bag. I have never sold gear before...I am leaning to KEH.  Is this a good approach? I am keeping my 4 SHG lenses as they work just fine on the EM-1....so I am not abandoning ship, just going with the new bodies,...
