If you have the ability to return the camera and get your money back do so now and pick a camera that would be more appropriate for your skill level.


This is a bad advice. Just go to 'scenes' - 'children' for a start. The OM-D will behave like a point and shoot (except for the dof).

and that is a big part (but not the only part) of the problem as I explained in detail above.

In the meantime start to read about photography with system camera's. Of course a course would be best (that was a good advice). But don't sell the camera, learn to use and enjoy the possibility's. That is my advice.

If he can not/will not return the camerra and he has the 14-42 kit lens it would be best to master that before using the 45mm f/1.8 lens.

That and keep the camera in iAuto or Scene mode as you suggest.

But really, he dumped over $2,000.00 into this camera and it is going to frustrate him a lot.

He can get the exact same sensor in a form factor far more appropriate for a point-n-shoot upgrader for less than $500.00 with kit lens.
