I was using my new Olympus OMD EM5 II with the Panasonic Lumix 12-35 f/2.8 lens and when I screwed on the quick release plate for my Manfrotto tripod, the QR plate is making full contact with the lens.  I can't tighten the plate down 100% and when changing lenses on the tripod I can feel the lens grind against the plate as I twist it off.I there any option to adapt the plate or buy one that is slightly modified so that the lens has clearance to not be under pressure from a QR plate that is...

TL;DR - Is there any significant advantage to the Mark II over the Mark I for someone taking family photos/videos? I own the OMD EM-5 Mark I and love it to pieces. I use a couple of different primes and can shoot in just about any light. I'm not a pro shooter. Just someone taking photos and video of his family. I shoot raw and everything comes out so nicely from the camera that it's rare I have to do anything to the photos in Light Room beyond the odd white balance adjustment. If I have a...

Just got EM5 II a few hours ago and have a question. The menus seem much more daunting for some reason than the EM5 I. Is there anyway to just have the back LCD be OFF when I dont have camera to my eye or when I am just carrying it around? On the EM5 v1, I could just hit the OK button and the SCP would show up, then half press shutter and it would go off, and EVF would turn on. Did anyone else do this on the EM5 v1?  Now with the EM5 II, that back LCD is always on until it dimms at 8 seconds....

Hello everyone, I was wondering how is the EM-10 shutter life compared to the EM-5 and EM-1. Olympus announced 100 000 shots for the EM-5, but the EM-10 is a more entry level DSLR and Olympus said nothing about the EM-1. Do you think the shutter is the same on all OM-D's? I've already asked the question about EM-10 on the Olympus SLR Talk, but I'm also interested in OM-D shutter life in general. In wonder if it changes with the "level" of the camera. Thank you, Regards

First I have to say that I have read Mark II previews like mad and finally I decided to bought my own OM-D E-M5 Mark II. My earlier camera was Sony NEX-6 and the main reason that I changed to OM-D was that great lens collection that Sony E-mount doesn’t got. Because I’m new with Olympus and OM-D here’s lot to learn (huge step from NEX, aargh :) ) and especially the menu structure looked first like nightmare :D One particular issue is very confusing and I doesn’t understand should it really...

Are there t any good cases for the Mark II other than the one made by Olympus?  I have only seen other cases for the EM5 body and people are saying those cases will not fit the new Mark II body? Thanks.

Thinking about getting the E-M5. Is it a worthwhile upgrade over the E30, as far as image quality goes? Many thanks for any response --Mannefrom Wasaga Beach, Ontario CApbase.com/photobasket
