  • Since this is a once in a lifetime trip don't cheap out on the glass and regret it later. I agree on renting the lens you need and purchase the extra insurance. Finally Have Fun Be Safe.
  • Let me give you my 2cents. I still own 2 E-1 - 2 E-3 - 2 E-5  1 M1 and the M1 MarkII. I still use the E-5’s when doing sports. BUT the new M1 MarkII is what Olympus should have come out with when ...
  • Do you remember when this forum exploded about having a E-5 MarkII or a E-7. I think there were 50pages on it. Then the day when when the CEO stated no more 4/3 will be produced. The OMD M-1 will ...
  • It’s one beautiful lens. I purchased my copy 4 or 5 years ago. Yes it’s no lightweight but the images you get with it are breathtaking.  My M-1 hunted a bit until it focused but the MarkII is spot ...
  • Go old school Paul set the body to manual, pan with the focus ring in dark settings. See how many keepers you have in each mode.
  • I don’t have any problem with the 150mm  on the M-1 MarkII. The 4th quarter I used the 150mm and it fired off some nice shots. If your using the M-1 in C-AF mode the keepers are very low. I found ...
  • For old guys with bad knees. Had this for 5+ years. I carry it everywhere.
  • I used C-AF mostly now because Olympus has finally got it. I had the shutter in silent mode and it works great. It was a beautiful day sky was deep blue full sun behind me. Using f2.8 started to ...
  • No problems. With a B&H Sitapon and a Manfrotto monopod makes things easy. It's really the only lens I need for covering Lacrosse, Football and soccer. My E-5 will have the 14-35mm f2.0 for team ...
  • Created discussion thread Olympus M1 Mark II 90-250mm f2.8
    Beautiful day for a Lacrosse fest. The Mark II and 90-250mm work very well together.
  • I’ll go with Chi’s solution. Good protection from bumps and bruises. You can still use your lens cap👍🏼 Save $$$
  • You are correct Michael... Using my 50mm f2.0 Macro now is a joy. With the M-1 it was hit and miss. Chris
  • I covered a Div II women's soccer game using the 90-250 & 150mm lens. I had the MarkII set to silent high speed and was impressed at the outcome. No distortion on any of the shots. Yes $200 bucks ...
  • OZ wait till you pick-up the MarkII with the grip. I think you might deep six your M-1 next to the E-5. This is as close to the E-5markii we're going to get to. Focus is tack sharp shooting with ...
  • My MMF-3 developed a odd dimple on the mounting flange towards the body. I found it very odd because I didn't own any m43 glass and never took the MMF-3 off the M-1. So I just purchased a ...
  • I've never seen one but I understand that it's a solid build with very little plastic and no weather sealing. The MMF-3 is light and is sealed for protection. From what I understand it's not ...
  • Replied in The E-620 ...
    Great camera for traveling but don't bring it to the beach or water park. The 12-60mm lens is the best for travel and it's sealed. Have fun
  • Seth I still own a pair of 3's and 5's with my M-1 falling apart I'm leaning on my E-5's.
  • Michael that was a great article of what I was talking about. I can't imagine that was the only incident.
  • Replied in FL-36
    The Fl-36 is a good well made little flash. Just have plenty of batteries charged up if you plan on shooting for long periods.
