I've got an E-5 with only about 7000 actuation's and it now is only letting my 12-60 swd open to f3.5, same with my 50-200 swd. Earlier today it would open to f3.2 then got worse. Everything is updated. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks, Steve

Hi all, My Fujifilm X-E1 was stolen, last week, and I need a new camera. I've done extensive researching and am pretty sure I want to jump to Olympus. (I shot Nikon for decades and still have a D5300, but I do not have brand loyalty to Fuji or Nikon, good as they are.) For me, the E-5 Mark II very much hits all the marks I need for now. I'd stay with Fuji and get the X-T10, but I have a daughter who moves around a lot, particularly in low-light performances, and my old E1 had just too much...

I asked this question in the Olympus forum, but perhaps it's better suited to this one. For portrait work, I currently use two Olympus FL50R flashes equipped with Aokatek receivers and the Aokatek transmitter mounted on my Oly E5 hotshoe with the onboard flash in the up position. When the system works, it works very well and overcomes the limitations of using the FL50R line-of-sight requirements. I do not use the TTL function at all, but I do use the camera menu to control power output for...

I currently use two FL50R flashes equipped with Aokatek receivers and the Aokatek transmitter mounted on the E5 hotshoe with the onboard flash in the up position when I set up for portrait work.  When the system works, it works very well and overcomes the limitations of using the FL50R line-of-sight requirements.  I do not use the TTL function at all, I do use the camera menu to control power output for the flash units.  This is essential, as far as I am concerned. That said, reliability has...

What are my best lens options for birds in flight? I have an em-1 with the 4/3 50-200 and 4/3 ec14 teleconverter. I went birding with a friend who shoots a Nikon ASPC system. We both got good results but his were better because he had more reach. My combo gets me to 566mm equivalent. He could get to 750. Here are my options... 1. Use the digital teleconverter 2. Get the ec20 teleconverter. 3.. Buy the m4/3 75-300 with or without the m4/3 1.4 teleconverter 4. Any other suggestions? And what...

When I try to upload into a post recent files I've uploaded to my new 12" MacBook from my Olympus E-5, your File Browser does not see those photo files. Files which have been imported to Photos from other computers to my Mac are recognized, but not those directly imported from my camera. Any help?

I have been trying to upload photos that I have taken with my E-5 and directly imported to Photos from my camera. The file browser here on DP Review doesn't see them! Files which I downloaded onto my wife's Lenovo and then copied to my MacBook via a flash drive are visible, but not those directly imported. Anyone know a fix?

I have an Olympus E-500. I want to know is there an inexpensive remote control, wireless or otherwise. that I can obtain for use with this camera. There seem to be plenty of ads for the piece of equipment I am looking for, but they don't seem to mention the e-500. I have a remote of a kind, but you have to be in front of the camera to use it, I want to be behind the camera, seeing the subject. I could use the timer, but I need to be able to take the photo instantly. Help on this matter would...

I have an opportunity to purchase a new workstation for the exact same price. One has a 10 Core E5 @ 2.3ghz and the other has a 6 Core E5 at 3.4ghz. This decision is based 100 percent on Lightroom, nothing else.  My initial feeling is to go with the 6 Core unit because I can always add a second and how heavily multi-threaded is Lightroom? I have 2 5D IIIs's on order and seeing how Lightroom handles the images on just my Macbook Pro i7 its 2.5 times slower than the images off of my current...
