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

I have just inherited a Samsung Galaxy S3 from my grandson.Is there a way to transfer jpg and orf files or just the latter to the phone from my EM1 and EP5 on a trip and then get them to my computer when I get home? I just ordered a 32 gig micro SD card and would like to use the S3 as a backup device. Is that doable? Any help would be appreciated.Thanks. Harvo

I own the 7-14 and an Oly EP5.  I use it mainly for shooting in dim lit wedding receptions and dim blue hour wide angle couple portraits.  I am having a hell of a hard time locking focus with this combination.  I own a few Oly and Panasonic lenses and this one is by far the worst. Will switching to a Panasonic body (GX7) make this lens focus better in low light?

Well, I clicked on something I didn't mean to and now the lcd screen will not come on even with the evf/lcd set to auto.  The lcd will come on if I swing it out from the back.  What should I do to make the evf/lcd auto switching feature function again?  Thanks in advance.  Yeah, I know I should know this. --alan brown

Hello - I've been considering the Olympus OM-D E-M10, PEN E-P5, and PEN E-PL7, and having trouble deciding among the three. They share the same sensor, and there are obvious size and weight differences. I also note that the OM-D E-M10 has 5-axis stabilization, versus 3-axis for the PEN E-P5 and PEN E-PL7. Aside from these differences (including cost), can anyone offer a bit of insight that might help me choose from among the three? Thanks.
