With those tiny little female contacts in the V3 Hot Shoe, I hate to leave the EVF out of the socket.  I don't recall getting a cover for the hot shoe when I got mine.  Is there an aftermarket V3 Hot Shoe Cover?

Hello! Having used E-M5 happily and effectively over 3 years it started to produce very thin reddish horizontal lines on images. Sensor coming to its end probably. So I bought a new E-P5 + VF-4 just for 399€ and was happy again...about a week. It seemed to work perfectly and produced as great images as my E-M5 had done. In few images I sort of noticed something like curious grain structure or pattern that I hadn´t seen in E-M5 files, but I thought that the newer processor just does something...

I know that my A7R has no Optical Low-Pass Filter on the sensor, but does the same configuration apply to the mk2?  I was getting ready to sell the A7R (even creating the ad) and in attempting to copy the features into the ad, noticed the Low-Pass absence and came to a stop!  I would assume that the same feature existed on both the Mk1 and the Mk2, but I can't find any mention of it in the Mk2 descriptions (which could also be true if it was not changed). Does anyone know for sure? --TomNikon...

I have never used the "Sensor Stick" but would like to know if it is any more 'risky' on the moveable sensor (as part of the IBS system) than the more common cleaning resources (thinking wet cleaning).  Has anyone tried the Sensor Stick on any of the IBS sensors?  If so, what was the result?  If not, what have you used (if anything yet)? --TomNikon D750, Nikon 1 V3, J5Sony a6000, a5100, a7R, a7RiiOly E-P2IR, A01 Airand Lots-O-Lenses

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...
