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 -...

Hi, I am totally new to photography so I hope you can help me on this. I want to get a Micro 3/4 camera but my budge is limited. I found a Olympus EP2 (without basic lens) and a Lumix 14-42 len set on Craigslist for $280. Do you think I should get the set? Should I just get the body and buy the len separately.  Thank you very much for all your help. I really appreciate it

Hey guys, So I have an 'ancient' Nikon D200 and a few lenses that I enjoy using (when I do shoot). In fact, I brought my rig with me to Europe a few weeks back and I'd say it was somewhat worth it. But I soon realized, after an aching back, that it really would have been nice not having to lug all that equipment around (D200 body, Tokina 11-16mm, Tamron 17-50mm, and Sigma 50-150). I've seen MFTs around and had it in the back of my head, but never really looked into them a whole lot. I know...

I assume  how well the camera works for BW and false color IR would depend on how the existing Bayer color filter array passes IR.  For example if only the red filter in the CFA passed IR, or if all RGB had the same response in the IR band it would be difficult to process for false color.Is there any information about how the CFA's in different cameras pass IR? This could determine which is the best IR filter, or which are the best cameras for IR photography.I have a E-P2 in for conversion,...

Hi, I have an Oly E-P2 + vf-2, with M.Zuiko 17 f/2.8 and M.Zuiko 40-150 f/4-5.6 lenses. I like the results, especially the JPEG images, I get, but I'm frustrated with the slooow AF and the unfortunate user interface (UI), and I'm thinking of upgrading to something that would be more user-friendly and responsive. I don't consider myself an Olympus fanboy, but maybe I have to admit being a Micro 4/3 fanboy. :-)I'm impressed with what I've read about the Panny G3 -- it seems to have a very good...
