I just bought an Olympus m43 17mm f/2.8 for my E-P3 body and it focuses perfectly in both AF and MF but the center part of the lens does not retract into the body when the camera is turned off. Is it supposed to? It sticks out quite a bit otherwise and I bought this lens because it is compact. It can be pushed back in and it extends back out when the camera is turned on. I searched but could not find any mention of this behavior in any reviews or even whether it is supposed to retract. A...
Hi all, this will be a long thread so I've highlighted the important parts! I know there have been countless threads on this, and I have read a ridiculous number over the past week (I've learnt so much new lingo and even started a Google Doc to keep track of all the different comments and suggestions!) But I haven't exactly found one that matches my scenario so I decided to take the plunge and enter the world of dpreview forums... I'm a student and this will be the first time I've ever bought...

The quest being, to photograph (not “picture take”) professional models, entertainers, local celebs, etc., in busy, bustling, public places...

I have an OMD EM5 and I am looking at getting a second lens primarily for street shooting but also for night time work and taking some photos of the stars. There's a large price difference between these lenses, as well as the obvious size difference, but I want to know is it worth getting the f1.8 over the f2.8? I'm new to photography, sort of, so I'm just not entirely sure if the price jump is worth it. Would the f2.8 be good enough in low light and night time? Is the depth of field...
I have a pancake 17mm f2.8 mft lens. If i set it wide open to f2.8, and get in close, the subject is in very sharp focus, but so is the background. Can I get any bokeh with this lens? What type of lens do you recommend that can deliver very good bokeh, but has other uses too? Carl

I have booked a trip consisting of India, China, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Singapore starting in January for a total of 7 months, lucky me! But what I wanted to ask was the opinions of what gear to take along. I am interested in buying an OM-D E-M5 to replace my E-PL3 and I am going to limit myself to 3 or 4 lenses to keep weight down. I will be taking a variety of shots both indoors and out and at night, and want to have a range of focal lengths including a...
