A couple of years ago, I was planning a trip to Europe and decided that I was not so inclined to carry my D7000 around and preferred something lighter. After some investigations I settled on an Olympus OMD E-M5 and as a backup an E-P5. For lenses, I have finished up with (ignoring the kit lenses):- Olympus 12-40 f2.8 PRO Sigma 60mm f2.8 Sigma 19mm f2.8 Panasonic 7-14 f4 I've never been unhappy with the images coming out of the m4/3 gear but I've been less than impressed with the reliability....

Just on a whim this morning I mounted my Olympus 43s' 12-60mm F2.8/4.0 zoom on my µ43s' E-P5 camera and it does hunt for a second but seems to acquire focus after this minor hunting. I thought PDAF 43s' lenses would only focus with PDAF? What's up, I thought the E-P5 was CDAF only? --"Reality leaves a lot to the imagination." John Lennon

i have an E-P1 that I bought when it was first released (2009?), and the 14-42 and 40-150 kit lenses that came with it.  I like the size and style of the PEN cameras but I haven't used mine much in recent years do to lack of opportunity.  However, I will be going on a cruise this summer and want to take lots of photos and videos. I am very interested in upgrading to newer versions of the lenses, but I am confused about which lenses are the best/newest versions. There seems to be a very wide...

On my Olympus E-P5, I have noise reduction (called noise filter) set to Off. I want to do the same on my new GX8, but can't find it anywhere in the menus (by the way, I don't see any advantage in Panasonic menus over Olympus so far!). Even when I search the Basic and Advanced PDF manuals, I can't find any mention of it, it only tells you how to do it when doing a RAW-Jpg conversion in camera. Not for when taking Jpgs. Can anyone tell me how to do it? It's quite possibly the same as on other...

Hello, I'm thinking about buying an E-P5.  It will be my first mirrorless & a big step up from what I'm used to.  I was playing with one in a shop & I noticed the shutter was quite loud.  Is there an option in that massive menu to use a quiet or silent shutter?  Many thanks & happy new year!

I just got a used E-P5 from eBay and proceeded to drop it on the first day I had it -- with camera falling on the corner where built-in flash is hidden. The body now has a dent (in the picture) and the flash is stuck in its compartment. I can get it out by wiggling it out with a credit card, but I need to fix the dent permanently.  Anyone has an idea on the best way to go about it (to incur least amount of damage)?

Specifically, the GX8? Will it work remotely like it does with my E-P5?

On the Pens, you can set the dial direction in the menu to [Custom B>Dial Direction>Menu>] either (1) CCW or (2) CW to go to the next item in the menu.  I use (2), since, down in the menu and CW suits me. With my E-PL3, this has no effect on selection in the SCP, but on my E-PL6, it does!  For example, when selecting IS in the SCP on the E-PL3, CW turns generate the sequence [Off -> IS1 -> IS2 -> IS3], and this is independent of the dial direction setting in menus. With my E-PL6, using dial...

I have been trying to find some reviews of these to and see what the main differences are?  I understand one has an evf and the other doesn't. Any feedback on these two models and what may be the better purchase for a neewbie??

Will there be a e-p6 or e-p5 mark II? I just want classic rangefinder look & feel 2 dials focus peeking latest sensor tech or is the latter senseless when it is possible to get the e-p5 for the e-pl7 price?
