I ordered one of these Fotodiox Tough E-mount replacements the other day and just got around to installing it this morning. It seemed to be a fine and simple replacement... until I tried mounting a non-Sony lens! I have at least three adapters which I use to mount non-Sony lenses (I have Nikon, Voigtlander, Canon and Sigma/C/Y mount), but apparently all my adapters are of the same brand (I never noticed this before - they were just all 'cheap') - Fotasy. None of these three adapters fit on...

I bought an all-metal mounting plate for the A7R to replace the plastic-metal OEM part.  Does anyone know if there are any specific instructions on the replacement process?  I suspect it's simply a matter of replacing the 4 screws that hold it on, but I don't want to get started and discover there are unexpected surprises.

What is the difference between these two adapters?  Obviously the LA-EA4 is bulkier than the LA-EA3, but other than that what can the -4 do that the -3 can't? Thanks,TomNikon D800, D750, Nikon 1 J5Sony a6000, a5100, a7ROly E-P2IRand Lots-O-Lenses

I see all these adapters that just say "Sony E-Mount", but they never seem to identify if it is the right 'focal length' to use on a full frame sensor, or if it is strictly an APS-C adapter.  Is there any way to know without actually trying it?  In these days of internet purchasing, that is an expensive and frustrating way to find out.  It does make a difference doesn't it? --TomNikon D800, D750, Nikon 1 J5Sony a6000, a5100Oly E-M5, E-P2IRand Lots-O-Lenses

When using long exposure times it also takes long time to before the camera is ready for next shot. How come?  When using exposure time of 20 seconds (thunder photos) I hear the camera is ready and a red LED show the photo is being processed. This takes a long time > 30 seconds until the camera is ready for next show.  So 20 seconds exposure time + 30 seconds of processing is long. how come and why?  Camera Olympus Pen E-P2

I just bought the fisheye body lens cap and it quite pleased with what it does - price/quality wise - when used on my old E-P2 body. I have dialed the nearest focal length into the E-P2 and the viewfinder picture is steady and pleasant. However when I use it on my E-M5 body, the viewfinder floats. Not until I take the picture does the viewfinder steady. It is extremely unpleasant and makes it unusable with my balance system! Is there a way to set focal length on the E-M5? I thought it was...

I was wondering which long lens people like with the Olympus EM-5 (and E-PM2 as backup)? Do people like the Olympus 75-300mm or the Panasonic 100-300mm? Now, on the EM-5, the Panasonic's IS would need to be turned off (or the camera's IS turned off). On the E-PM2, I can set the camera to favor using lens IS if it has it over sensor based IS. I suspect lens based IS might be more effective than sensor shift. The Olympus wins out in terms of weight (430g vs 520g), which might be a factor in...

I rarely shoot video, but when I do it's likely to be an interview,so a longer, and larger file, is desirable to avoid having to constantlyreset the camera after 8 mins, or so. My EP2 has a max video file size (AVI) of 2GB. The EP5 offers MPEG, soI guess 4GB might be possible? Does anyone know if that is so? Stephen --

I'm just mucking about with a big quadcopter. It's got a live video feed to the control unit, and I'd like to use my E-P2 for that "First Person View (FPV)" as they call it, with the HDMI-out plugged into the quadcopter's 5.8GHz feed. Trouble is, as soon as the E-P2 is plugged into the HDMI, it just goes into playback mode, displaying whatever the last picture/video I took, instead of "real life". Having trawled through the manual, I can't find any mention of being able to change this -...
