Hey guys I'm looking for a replacement for my Fuji X100S. I've read alot of reviews and forum threads and I can't decide which camera I should get. I'm selling my Fuji because I'm not happy with the sharpness wide open and the focal length. I have two cameras in my mind: PEN Ep-5 with VF-4 or OMD EM-5 Mark II I can get the OMD for 1090 USD and the Pen with VF-4 for 720 USD. Is there a difference in AF speed and IQ between these two cameras? And how is the high iso performance compared? I...

Nowadays even the smallest camera is capable of so much, it's hard to make the decision on which camera to buy or which camera to keep because they are all so good! I currently have an EM1 for sports and wild life and an EP5 for everyday light weight general purpose use. My wife has a GM1 so we can share lenses with each other. Now that my wife got the new fancy iPhone 6, she pretty much left the GM1 in the dry cabinet ever since. She said I could use it and I did, a lot, because it's so...

Due to a spinal injury, pressing my E-P5s shutter button is nigh on impossible for me so I just love the touchscreen ability for capturing. The prospect of using voice recognition though with an Android phone to snap a picture at any time is much more appealing. Attemps so far using the Tasker, AutoVoice and the Olympus OIShare apps haven't gone too well, Tasker is elluding my grey matter absorption. :) My immediate aim is to prepare the phone when I want pic taking session and be always...

Help:  I am about to start time-lapse photography on Olympus E-P5, how to turn off or dim down the LCD screen in order to conserve battery power. And, have 300 shots on one battery charge. I'm unable to identify from Olympus instruction manual. Does any one have an experience ? If so, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, George

Happily using e-p5 for a while now and have it doing pretty much what I want via mysets and SCP. Minor irritation that hasn't gone away: Set up is custom menu D, Control Settings: set to SCP on, Live Control off. In use, SCP comes up as expected when OK pressed. Pressing OK again to confirm selection clears SCP as expected, but displays Live Control. So another press of OK is needed to complete the selection. Not a huge problem, but doesn't seem to track with custom menu setting and the...

I use pen e-p5 + vf4 + 35-100 f2.8 to shoot club rugby from the touch line. At the outset, I know some would say, and maybe will, give up and buy DSLR. None the less the results aren't bad; good numbers of keepers and improving with practice. I have settled into using SAF with single small central focus target and keep 'pulsing' half press on the shutter release while tracking action through the vf, then (obviously) press all the way to capture. My attempts to use CAF, with or without...

I bought the ep5 a couple of months back. Very pleased with the results. However, I have noticed that when the camera is powered off there is a definite rattling sound when the camera is moved. This is noticeable when the camera is worn across the body and walking over rough ground. Searching on the forums and a bit of playing with the camera this definitely seems to be the sensor moving around the axes of image stabilisation. First question - have others noticed this to a significant extent?...

Never used it yet, but there is a menu option to set Shutter Lag to Normal or Short, the latter at the expense of battery life. Anyone know what the real time difference is between the two? Doesn't seem noticeable at Normal - any other hidden benefits to Short setting? Thanks in anticipation. Cheers, Paul

Hi all Pen E-P5 users I recently bought this camera with firmware 1.6 already installed. I try to customise the PASM function in the mode dial as mentioned in the review, such as assigning a MYSET to the S mode, but I can only see the Art and iAUTO mode can be assigned on, there is no option to assign to the PASM. Anyone done this before? Cheers and happy shooting
