Hi Chris,

Images seem a bit underexposed. I guess you have to shoot in A mode.

Could be. I really don't know. I'm not sure how it would make a difference since the camera does not detect an f stop, you get " -:- " on the screen in place of the aperture regardless of mode.

Canon 5D Mark II, 24-105mm L, 70-200mm f/4L IS, EF, 100mm f2, Tokina 16-28mm f2.8.
Olympus O-MD E-M5, E-PL3, 12-50mm, 14-42mm II, 17mm, 45mm f1.8.
Ricoh GR-D
Sony DSC-V3 (used for IR)

Like with legacy lenses, you have to set the camera to A. The camera will select the proper shutter speed. The exposure compensation can still be activated to lighten or darken the image.

I'm surprised that Olympus didn't add a couple of contacts, to set the EXIF f stop data.

My nickel, since the penny is being discontinued...
