On an OM-D EM5 with this lens I'm not able to set manual focus, which is kind of annoying and makes me think I'm doing something wrong. In particular I set 'MF' from the proper camera options menu, with all kinds of shooting types (including manual), but despite that it continues to automatically adjust the focus no matter what. What am I doing wrong here? thanks in advance!

Hi I recently did a portrait shoot with both E-M5 and E-M10. I used an external flash triggered by a wireless remote and set both cameras to the WB Flash preset in camera. Then I imported the RAW files into Lightroom and the white balance for all photos shot with the E-M5 appears now as 6150 (+11) and all files of the E-M10 have a value of 6500(+14). I reviewed the preset settings in both cameras and it says there that flash is 5500 for both cameras. Now I know that I can easily change the...

Just wondering if anyone can help me. I've recently purchased an Olympus OMD EM-5 and am trying to get used to all the settings. At first I could see what I was photographing through my display screen and then when I moved my eye up to the camera it would automatically change so that I was looking directly through the lens. I must have done something to the settings because now I can only seem to choose between the display and nothing through the lens or I can look directly through the lens...

Hey guys, I have an Olympus omd em5 II camera. And I want to shoot some close-up videos with soft light. Seems like ring light is made exactly for that purpose. But after some searching it seems that hose are bloody expensive! (100-1500 USD) Anybody knows of relatively cheap alternative which will fit my omd em5? Thank you

Hi there, first of all, sorry for the quick post, we're tight on time and don't have internet access every day. So, we've started a trip three months ago, after a few weeks of research I've decided to go with the EM-5. First few weeks went just fine, mostly iAUTO mode, but I've started to get into the fine-tuning of the camera and found it really cool and some features are really useful on it. Fast forward a few weeks, we noticed that the images are not as sharp anymore. Pardon my lack of...

I am wondering if any of you folks have used Domke wraps?  I am not sure what size to get for an Olympus OM-D E-M5 with a battery grip and 14-42 or 25mm lens attached.  Thanks for any help you can offer!

I've tried DOF stacking up to 16 images and keep seeing this "ghosting." I'm using the 25mm f/1.8 lens, camera in A Mode on a tripod with 2sec delay; focus points are the adjacent 15 points on the grid; then auto aligning and auto blending in PS CC 2014. I had no problem with this process using a Nikon D90, but the Olympus doesn't want to cooperate. Any ideas, suggestions, work-arounds? --Brian Lawson

So, here's the situation. Last January, almost a year and a half ago, I purchased the Olympus E-PL5 and I have loved using it. I love the size, the image quality, ease of use, almost everything except for that it lacks an EVF. So to compensate for this, I have recently started looking into an external EVF such as the Olympus VF-4, which I have found for around $130 used. I was almost set on ordering the VF-4, but then I had a thought. Because the EM-5ii came out recently, the original EM-5...

Hi all, I am in love with the 4/3 system, and have been using it intensively for both video and photo since Christmas. I had a nikon cam for a year but sold because the video was just not up to scratch, and it was so big I never wanted to take it anywhere. I am a journalism student but I have a part time gig shooting mud runs etc, both photo and video, as well as journalism jobs in all sorts of conditions (usually low light indoors). I have a G6, the 20 1.7, 14-42 and the 45-150 I was...

So I have the panasonic lumix gf3 model right now and I love it but my daughter who is about to turn 3 has started taking pictures. So I figured since I have a very good knowlege of the ins and outs of cameras but want to stay with mirrorless is the best to go with. I have found several cameras that have peeked my interest and need a push in the right direction. I shoot landscape, pets, and of course my child. If there is a camera i have not mentioned but you highly recommend  please put it...
