  • I hope you were well compensated for your eloquent excuse for abuse. My comment stands.
  • someone will offer used lancets for sale.  "Hey....we only used it once, and there was only a little bit of blood on it...." I've seen those ads where I live in Phoenix, Arizona.  I train nurse ...
  • "The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated."
  • Replied in EM5lll
    That's the feature that would make me seriously consider a Mk III.  My Mark I has served me very well for six years.  The LCD screen died late last year and I paid $170 to get it fixed.  But at ...
  • Happened to me in December while visiting my sister in New York City.  The LCD screen on my 6 year old E-M5 died.  (Understand that Olympus's Super Control Panel on the LCD facilitates most ...
  • Replied in No
    I love my hobby and managed to get some gear at the same time as our two kids went through college.  OK...they both had some scholarships and worked, but you get the point. What the financial ...
  • Much as I'd like an updated GM5, I have to wonder if they'd be able to pull off the updates/enhancements with the same battery it has now. 20 mP sensor, updated firmware/processor = more power ...
  • Replied in It's only May...
    ...so for now we get stuff that ...might...have a grain of truth, some head fakes, and stuff that someone pulled out of thin air.  I'm sure there are prototypes out there (probably in Japan), but ...
  • I wouldn't doubt an announcement of an E-M5Mkiii at Photokina.  I'd guess we'll start seeing some more authoritative rumors (if I can call them that) in June/July. I really wonder about a Mk II ...
  • not too large, not too small (I have a GM5 so I know "small"), not too heavy, not too....anything.  Could it be better?  Sure.  Couldn't everything? The enemy of good is perfect.  It just depends ...
  • The 25/1.4 is a spectacular...$500+...lens.  I got my 25/1.7 for $99 new a couple years back, and it's OK and 1.7 and fine at 2.0.  I'm getting what I paid for.  Really think a comparison of the ...
  • Replied in You're right...
    The marketing folks wanted way too much out of this lens:  WR, internal focusing, dual zoom, pseudo-macro, and small.  For that, they wanted $500.  At that time, that was the cost of a HG lens, ...
  • I think youl also find the balance of the 14-54+adapter at home on your Em1. Much nicer than the 12-50. A word of warning, though. DO NOT, under any circumstances, play with the 12-40. You'll ...
  • The key for me was when you said you had the 11-22. In that context, I'd take the 14-54 without hesitation. I used the Mk I version + MMF3 adapter on my E-M5 for two years before I got my 12-40. ...
  • For starters, I live in Phoenix, AZ. For a trip to San Diego, my GM5, 12-32, O 45/1.8 and batteries. On long vacations, E-M5 Mk I, 35-100/2.8, 100-300, GM5, primes, flashes...pretty much ...
  • which was NOT what I expected would happen when I bought it.  With the kit 12-32, you get decent ILIS, maybe two stops worth. Excellent lens, BTW.  I pair mine with the 35-100/2.8, which ...
  • This was not helpful, Louis. I told my wife I didn't need another body. My E-M5 and GM5 are a nice pair. It's so elegant and people keep saying it can be set up to work quickly and efficiently. BTW ...
  • Replied in I have one...
    I can make my Olympus E-M5 as manual as I want.  Seriously, I hear your point, but:  1) there's no ROI; 2) the market LIKES more automatic cameras now. Maybe Point 2 is a restatement of Point 1. Un ...
  • Replied in No...
    Don't use mine much, but in the daylight and stopped down, it's very serviceable.  And you have the advantage of it being WR, assuming you've got a WR body.
  • Mine died of natural causes about 3 months ago.  Just....quit....Sent it off to Olympus Repair Services in NJ.  Cost me $145 + shipping.  Came back good as new. That's my first repair of a camera ...
