Brian Steele's recent activity

  • I'm still quite fond of my old E520 and E620 (particularly when I use my 50mm F2.0 with the latter).  However my camera of choice these days is the OMD-EM10 II, mainly because it's lighter (and ...
  • How does this lens compare to the Oly 25mm F1.8, which is now just over double the price?  My main camera is an OMD-EM10 II, and I'm looking at the prime options.  I already have the Oly 17mm F1.8.
  • I brought one of these for my wife in 2005 when we were visiting the UK. She loved it, and we still have it (and yes, it still works). Back then I was brandishing a 4MP Panasonic FZ15 (an...

  • ...and don't forget, a Fully-Articulated Screen! :-)
  • I use the 14-150 MkII almost exclusively with my EM10 MkII at the moment, switching to the 17 1.8 only when the light starts to go and getting as much light as possible to the EM10's sensor ...
  • I'd second the suggestion for the 14-150 II. I use that lens and my 14-42 and 40-150 basically stay in the cupboard all the time now.  It's a decent walkabout lens, once you're aware of its ...
  • I used to have one of the cheaper Maniacs. My first digital camera. Stopped working when it got dropped and the FD head went out of alignment. Probably something that won't ever happen with other...

  • Replied in 50 mm and E520
    My old E520 made the trip twice to Olympus due to focusing issues (the latter time going with the lens that I wanted it to work best with), so I feel your pain. On the bright side, if you use the ...
  • The E520 was my first and remains my favourite dSLR, and I used to use the E520/18-180 combo for quite a while.  I still use my E520 from time to time, but mainly with the 50mm F2.0 prime - a ...
  • Created discussion thread OI.Share....
    "... this item is not available in your country" GRRR! How can an Android app from Olympus not be available for download because of where I'm located (Grenada, West Indies) !?
  • Created discussion thread Service Manual for E-PL5
    I wonder if one's available? My E-PL5 has developed a problem with the review screen (if it's extended and allowed to snap back to the closed position, it goes off, and the camera has to be ...
  • Not "discontinued", but "out of production". I don't believe Olympus is still producing the EM10. They might still have stock for sale however.

  • If you meant the Mark I, I think an answer was already provided concerning the choice to not include discounted out-of-production models.

  • Replied in New EPL5
    Funny, I thought that the Oly menus were pretty well thought out, particularly considering the bewildering number of options available.  Enabling the SCP is a definitely plus.  I also found that I ...
  • B&H currently has the EM10 II at $549 and the E-PL7 at $399. That's a fairly big difference in price. I was comparing the two recently and eventually went with the EM10 II, due to slightly...

  • The video for the EM10 II says it has 3-axis IS. The Olympus website however says that it has 5-axis IS, like the EM5 and EM1. The older EM10 has 3-axis IS

  • That's correct.  I'm looking for one with a snug fit.  I'm going to be walking, jogging, running and climbing, and crossing the occasional stream or two with this bag holding my camera, so I want ...
  • Thanks everyone for the suggestions so far. I think I need to clarify my needs however. I do 95% of my photography on hashes these days. There's no time to switch lenses (and given the conditions, ...
  • Created discussion thread The Bag Search is on again....
    My E-PL5 recently decided to stop working, so while it's off for repair I need another m43 camera and it looks like it's going to be the E-M10 II. I need however to get a suitable bag to hold it, ...
  • Agreed - damn, I won't say that it's pegging the ugly-meter, but it is getting the needle moving quite a bit!
