    In dPreview's review of the best cameras and lenses of 2019, Olympus and Panasonic are barely mentioned. Of note, lenses for M4/3 platforms, only Fuji and Sony are mentioned.  I think the review ...
  • I live in Northern California where the climate is why many people want to live here. Seldom does it freeze or snow. The images are a bit overexposed because I did some post processing on the ...

  • I had an E-510 and discovered that exposing images with a -1/3ev setting worked to keep highlights from being blown away. RAW can only go so far in recovering data. When whites are 255, 255, 255, ...

    I love the overall impact. It looks like a painting to me, one I would like to own!
  • I've owned one for about 3-4 years. Early on, a strap post came loose. I sent it to Olympus to get it repaired. They sent the repaired camera back (put locktite on the nuts this time.) Since then, ...
