Hi there - I currently have an Olympus EPL1 which is in desperate need of upgrading. I've loved shooting with that camera over the years and have taken some pretty great landscape/street photos with it. (I have both the 14-42mm and 42-150mm kit lenses as well as the Leica 25mm F1.4 which has been amazing for portraits). I shoot in manual mode and have a pretty good understanding of how things work. As a result, i do have some future goals of making a side business out of my photography skills...

With E-M1 and 300mm f/4 I have spent hours in the garden looking skywards waiting for the raptors.  My sweetheart says I'm a bit weird and agrees with the comparison to Meerkats that, for those who have not had the pleasure of seeing them on sentry duty, post one or two of their family to keep watch for aerial predators. She does accept that with a 10-day trip to the Pyrenees next week there is need to practice with the new kit.  Anyway, here are some of the results from the...

I will buy this week in the US one of the new long lenses we have now, Oly 300/F4 or Pany 100-400,  to match my EM1. I always buy at B&H, but they already sold all the ones they had in a few days like butter, as many of us predicted. And I don't have experience with other stores...  So where to buy them? I have found the lenses, but I only want a store as good/serious/trustable as the B&H is.  Thanks,  L.  -- My gallery: http://luis.impa.br/photo

I just picked up the new Panasonic Leica 100-400 lens to use with my Olympus OM-D E-M1 body.  This is the first Panasonic lens that I've used with the E-M1.  Will I get better results using only the image stabilization on the lens, only on the camera, or set as on for both.  I don't believe that the in camera IS will work in conjunction with the lens IS as it might if it was an Oly lens with an Oly body.  So far, I've only had a chance to try it out a little, and I kept the body IS off and...

Hope you can help. Bought the Fotodiox OM-m43 adapter hoping to use my new/used Olympus 9-18mm lens on my E-m1. Have the adapter and lens on camera but doesn't seem to focus no matter what I try. I know there's some steps to adapting lenses and don't know what they are. Can you guide me on the steps? Thanks very much.

I'm trying to measure the resolution of some legacy lenses, and I'm puzzled with the result I have so far. I'm wondering if I have made some basic error in understanding or calculation, or if I'm seeing some limitation of the camera system. I have obtained an Edmund Scientific Resolving power chart, which is basically a series of USAF 1951 resolution patterns printed inside a 24" high by 36" wide...

From the description in David Busch's Olympus OM-D E-M1 Guide to Digital Photography the camera usually does not adjust to quick changes in subject distance. So, it appears, you can set the C-AF lock to High to allow the camera to adjust to those changes such as a BIF coming towards you.   Is that your understanding? Cheers, Mark --Always learning

The set subject for our camera club May competition is Double Exposure.  The guidelines  state: "A photograph composed of 2 exposures that either compliment or contrast each other. Images ideally should be exposed and “processed” in camera as opposed to 2 exposures blended in editing software." What is the experience of E-M1 users doing successful double exposures? Cheers and thanks, Mark --Always learning

I'm looking for some advice on the EE-1 red-dot sight. In particular, I am wondering if anyone is having success using it with C-AF+Tr mode with the E-M1? The reason that I am asking is that I am not having much luck with focus accuracy using just the E-M1 (no EE-1 sight) in C-AF mode. It has only recently come to my notice how the E-M1 works in C-AF mode with either 9-area or all-areas selected. I had rather dumbly assumed that if you were using say 9-area, that once you started a sequential...

I would be interested to hear of experiences using C-AF with TR particularly for BIFs. Under what circumstances and conditions were good results achieved? Cheers, Mark --Always learning
