About me:

I started taking photographs when my dad bought me a Canon AE-1 camera and when my uncle gave me lessons on how to use it. I enjoyed it as a hobby so much so that I worked in the photographic industry for 3 decades and travelled for assignments. Now, I work in a different field, but I'm still taking photographs and I don't think it will ever stop.

  • Did you send it to Trinitek?
  • Thank you for sharing the images and your experiences.  This gives me some more food for thought in regards to the M1.2.
  • I mainly use the Olympus E-5 in daylight and overcast and shooting mainly moving subjects like bicycles, cars, horses in events using ISO 160-400. As long as I keep it there then the images are ...
  • My concern is with FT lenses.   I am planning to add another long FT lens so I can use it with my E-5 and later on with the E-M1II.  How is the focusing with the 50-200 with 1.4TC speed and ...
  • Lets hope it is not the case.
  • Generally, I was really impressed with the E-M1 II AF performance. The AF target concern stemmed from me using then f/1.2 and the 75mm f/1.8 prime lenses they had at the demo event. I noticed that ...
  • Hopefully they'll think of something and fix this.  I really like the E-M1 II and hopefully by the time I can afford one, it will have a number more improvements added!
  • This was the reason I bought the E-5 used rather than the E-M1 because of the cross type sensors which works fantastically in some situations when the E-M1 would hunt in low contrast situations. Bu ...
  • Yes, I tried the E-M1 II at the drink and click event and noticed the enlarged grip area which will help with my gloves, and  is better than the original E-M1 which they also have at the show.  So ...
  • My local battery store sells the BLM-5 replacement under the brand name (Lenmar DLZ3110)with a 2 year warranty.  I never had any problems with Lenmar batteries with my other cameras .  They are ...
  • I have an Olympus E-5 which I bought for $200 Canadian and in mint condition in place of the E-M1 as I have an E-P5 already.  In terms of performance, the E-5 can deliver in good light and up to ...
  • I'm really intrigued by the high prices the E-5 still command on eBay and from KEH and B&H Photo if used ones ever surface.  Probably because some professionals still shoot with an E-5 and don't ...
  • Unlike you, I still have the 14-54, print big with 12MP files generated by the E-5 and people admired my prints. I do have the lens still (the inferior 14-54) and still shoot with it today along ...
  • Definitely, the 14-54II is not a SHG lens and the 70-300 is SG. but it can deliver @ 12MP. I've tested the Olympus SHG lens and have determined that while it performs better than my 14-54II, it's ...
  • Actually I do on an outdated E-P5.  I have pro zooms and sharp primes.  I also shoot with an outdated E-5 with top glass.  Normally I shoot both of them; E-5 with the 14-54 II and E-P5 with the ...
  • The "push them to move upscale" tactics camera makers play today can only serve to make people keep their cameras longer and hasten the last camera syndrome even more.  Just producing the same ...
  • To me, the Olympus E-5 represented the best deal I've ever made in acquiring good gear that still works and produce great files today.  It was cheaper than an E-M1 when I bought it (about 1/4 ...
  • To me, any camera is now just a black box.  In my personal view, the E-1 limitations aren't a problem to me.  I grew up with film bodies and shoot sports since the days of manual focus lens and ...
  • This was taken with my Olympus E-1 with the 14-54 II @ f/3.5 using the lowest ISO.  Shutter speed was 1/30sec and this is tack sharp and I had printed big with no monopod, no tripod assistance. ...
  • In good light, I can do that with an iPhone.  What's your point and why are you so combative?
