Will this allow for use of image stabilization built into the Panasonic 14-140mm Lumix f3.5-5.6 lens? The information about this new firmware says the following: "Compatible with Olympus lens with a built-in image stabilizing function.* The camera body recognizes the IS built into the lens, allowing for optimal image stabilizing effects.Not compatible with 5 axis Sync IS.* You can get the effects of rolling stabilization from the IS function of the body, along with the effects of image...

Whenever I import my in raw and jpeg taken photos to lightroom or iPhoto I get the raw files cropped. Some time ago I could import files in 16:9 jpeg and 4:3 raw formats at the same time. I cannot reproduce this anymore. Can someone help, please? --fidibushttp://home.fotocommunity.de/hannesm

I've got a Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark Ii in (M)anual mode. My understanding is, that when I press the shutter button half way, the metering system applies my selected aperture and shutter speed and the exposure indicator shows how many stops I'm under- or overexposed (up to 3 or more than 3). What I don't understand: Even with the shutter button not pressed at all, the exposure indicator is visible in the view finder. And it sort of always shows I'm 3 or more overexposed. What does the exposure...

Hi guys. I'll have a trip to Germany this coming March. It would be my first time to shoot in snow. I plan to carry primes (portability) but I am worried about the weather. 1. Is is safe to change lens while outdoor? 2. How will the weather affect my body and lens? 3. Any pointers? :)

Recently bought myself a set of cheap chinese radio flash triggers. Pocket Wizard knock offs. They work great with my epl2. Put them into the hotshoe and shoot away - the strobes fire fine. Totally do not work with my OMD. A bit of investigation shows why - the epl uses the retaining rim of the hotshoe as one part of the circuit to fire the strobe trigger wit the hot spot on the middle of the shoe floor giving the other contact. The OMD has a heavily anodised paint job on the hot shoe rim -...

Mostly will use with 75-300 lense for planespotting. I'm very surprised how sharp is that lense. Any suggestions? Also, has anyone used these bodies with Sigma 50-500 lense with adapter? Thanks, Gintaras

Over the last few days I've been trying to learn my E-M5ii's high resolution mode.  In my testing, the jpegs come out very sharp, but the raws, even with sharpening, don't seem to be as sharp--but maybe I'm not being aggressive enough.  However, I use DxO which automatically applies sharpening to raw files, so I don't think that is it (have tried this in Lightroom, too).  So my question is, how much value is there to the raw files over the jpegs in high resolution mode?  If the answer is, it...

For some reason the shots are coming up out of sequence and with a series of long bursts it's a pain to have to go back and put them in sequence. Camera or software ? (imported with Adobe Photo Importer, unedited) Shot with an Olympus O-MD E-M5 and Olympus 25 f/1.8 lens, Aperture priority, AUTO WB, ISO manual focus low burst mode...

Hello, I wonder if anyone can help with a couple of customization questions. First I'd like to be able to assign one dials or buttons to switch between picture modes (e.g., I monochrome, Custom, Neutral...) but haven't found if there's a way to do this.  Second, I'd like not to have to select the file transfer mode when I plug the camera into my computer with the USB cable - currently it ask whether I want to use Storage, MTP or printer and I'd like it to default to "Storage" These are two...

I am new to photography as a hobby and would like a nice starting camera.The two setups that I am considering are the m10 with kit lens ($600) and the m10 II body with the 14-42 II R ($700), i.e., the same lens but different bodies. The lower profile of the EZ does not seem worth the $50 to me, but I could be mistaken. I was planning on eventually getting the ~$99 Olympus 40-150mm zoom so that I can experiment with different focal lengths. Quality primes can be considered later. From my...
