About me:

E-M1 and some m43 lenses
E-M5 in a box... maybe I'll send it off to Olympus one of these days.
OM-4 (yay, finally replaced the one that was stolen)

  • Replied in 20-30mm
    20-30mm is not a range I use that much. For a walkaround lens (street, night) I tend to rely on my 17/1.8, backed up by my 45/1.8, or more recently the 60 macro. While the lens I'll take on my ...
  • Replied in Well
    grip separation is not uncommon on Olympus... even way back. My OM-PC had the problem, have an E-1 w the issue on the thumb grip, and the rubber completely pealed off my HLD-6 grip. And yet I have ...
  • did you open it up?  I don't use the little flash often, and a couple times I forgot to pop it up and couldn't figure out why it didn't work.
  • Haven't read every post in this thread, so some of this might be redundant, but here's my 2c The E-M10 is slightly smaller than the 5/5II W grip it is still slightly smaller/lighter than the 5 w ...
  • Look to a mirror lens My Sigma 600mm F8 had plenty of reach.  OK, it wasn't my sharpest lens, but quite usable.  And it only cost me $30 in OM mount. And then there's the 400mm f6.3 lens that I cut ...
  • I'm thinking if they can do handheld high res, they can also do handheld HDR?
  • I saw a few people bemoaning the lack of weather sealing. I wonder if the thinking in Oly land went something like this: the PEN-F will be used mostly with primes which are not sealed, so why ...
  • Hi-res mode, as implemented in a couple Olympus bodies, requires precise shifting of the sensor, sufficient buffer for 8 images plus the compiled image, sufficient processing capacity... so no, ...
  • or Amazon, if the battery was a recent purchase. Possible the battery was exposed to excessive heat, or shock, or not properly manufactured Whatever the cause, if it doesn't live up to its ...
  • 14-150 II (or the Panasonic or Tamron equivalents) will give you the biggest range w/o lens swapping.  Add a fast prime like the 17/1.8 or 25/1.8 for low light shooting, or when you want a smaller ...
  • I expect the upcoming E-M1/II will have at least some of the 5/II's extra features, but it does seem Olympus sometimes spreads features over several models, so one has to buy more than one body to ...
  • If you get another OM-D, get one in silver if yours is black, or the other way around.  Will make it easier to tell them apart if you have them set up differently. But if you wind up w two E-M1s ...
  • Why assume the attack was due to the act of taking a picture? The man might have attacked the op if he was photographing a lamp post... or just walking along not holding a camera. If he was upset ...
  • Replied in Obvious choice.
    If IQ at 300mm is your primary criteria, go for the 300mm f4! :-) ...or perhaps the 100-400mm But of the choices listed, the Panny might have a (very) slight edge ... being a tad brighter, you can ...
  • Luton Camera in the UK can supply many Olympus parts, maybe let Advance know about them http://www.lutoncameras.com/ Olympus likes full control of things like parts, repairs, firmware.
  • Replied in I have to wonder
    If Olympus has two assembly lines... One using military spec components that turns out cameras built like tanks and one using marginal components and shoddy assembly.  So far, I've yet to get a ...
  • The more I think the ideal focal length would be around 120mm. first, it's 2x 60mm so it would make sense to some to own both, where as 100mm may not be different enough and many would opt for one ...
  • Replied in maybe M-OM
    'Mother of OM'
  • OM-F (for Fullframe) OM-A(alpha) if they go w the Sony mount) OM-35 OM-OV (oversized) OM-2x
  • With an 8:6 format sensor :-)
