Hi guys, so I was looking through a camera classifieds website from my country and saw that people sometimes trade their same system camera bodies for other camera bodies. Now I was just wondering if it was possible for me to maybe trade my EPL3 with a GH1/2 or G1/2? and which would be the one that would have the highest successful chance of me being able to get a successful trade. Also another thing, would it be worth it? Thanks in advance. --Photography enthusiast.

In my FF film days, I had always enjoyed using a 24mm prime and, although later (with a DSLR now) I acquired a 10-22mm (14-32mm equivalent), it was the prime I favoured as a general lens. For quite a few years I hardly used these cameras at all, prefering to use a decent compact. Then I discovered the Olympus PEN! The first additional lens I bought after buying my PEN e-pl3 was the 9-18m to recapture those wide perspectives. More recently, now with an OMD em10, I have added the 25mm f1.8 and...

Hello, I've got an Oly E-PL3. Is there a way to lock the MySet options once the FN (or other button) is pressed once and unlock when pressed again instead of keeping it pressed to maintain settings while shooting? I didn't find anything on this in the manual or searching the web.

Hi ! I received a second hand E-PL3 from a serious vendor (no scam here). When i unpacked it and removed lens mount protection, shutter was open (normal). But when i put a charged battery, mounted stock 14-42mm, and started it, camera done the first startup shutter test...but just after, shutter is stuck closed. And stay like this, until i shutdown and restart again. Same without any lens mounted. Is there a possiblity of shutter protection bug, firmware bug (1.0 only) or anything else i...

Hello everyone, I'm new to posting (read dpreview quite often), but I have a problem with my 3-week old EM10. Today I tried changing the file size to RAW and realized the menu is "stuck", as in grey, and I am not able to change the current file size (L N). I tried different modes, from the menu as well as from live view, changing the SD card, resetting the camera (basic and full), but nothing seems to work. This is rather worrying. I upgraded from an Olympus E-PL3 which never ever gave me...

Hi all, first time poster hereMy trusty (sarcasm) e-pl3 shutter seems to have given up after around 6k clicks. It'll still close and open when the camera starts up, but emits a louder click, and more pronounced shock. When I take an exposure, it closes but doesn't reopen for the duration of the photo. As a result I get a nice dark frame before the camera shuts off. Any ideas? Off of warranty..

I have been using the Samyang 7.5mm f3.5 (micro 4/3rd mount) on my Olympus Em5 and Olympus EPL3 for quite some time and find it to be a very sharp lens even at wide apertures. And not only that its much sharper than the older Samyang 8mm f3.5 (designed for dslrs) which was very soft at f3.5 and had ok sharpness at f5.6. There was also the issue of flaring when shooting directly at light sources (such a street lights). Now its my understanding that the m4/3 mount uses only the centre of the...
