Up front I want to say that the aperture blades are not sticking and exposure metering is normal. When exposure is set to min aperture the DoF preview button works normally. The iris is snappy and responsive and displays none of the behaviour cited by many here when they describe the 'stuck aperture' fault. However, since I've started shooting video with this lens on the E-M1II I've noticed that even with the lens set wide open, eg f/2.8 at 12mm, I hear the Aperture mechanism makes 'ticking'...

I've had the subject lens about 7 years.  It recently began to go very dark when in use.  You can still see through it, but the entire FOV is quite dark and the light meter reads 7-8 stops too low.  Tried it on 2 different E-5 cameras where other lenses work fine.  Sometimes the lens will function properly for a while, then goes dark. Planning to send it to Olympus for evaluation, just curious if anyone else has seen this problem.  It has been used a lot for professional photography, mostly...

Hello, hoping you can help me settle on a camera. I am looking to get into the mirrorless camera market and have settled on Olympus due to the lens ecosystem at an affordable price. I travel quite often and enjoy both photographing my trips as well as recording video (for short travel videos). Since I often hike in remote areas, its enjoyable to get some astro shot as well such as the milky wy. In the past, I have used a GoPro and Canon SL1. My goal with the Olympus is to merge the two into a...

hello. before a year i bought an olympus OM4. The seller said to me that is possible an OM4T prototype as this camera belongs to his father he works for many year in olympus. in the front side of the camera near OM4 there was a T red letter sticker that was placed Near 4 ( like 4T). when i received this camera as an amateuro i thought that this camera is An OM4 and just somebody sticks there the T letter. I placed it on ebay to sell like an OM4 camera and a person message me that the up side...

I've used this lens almost daily for the past eight years or so, and apart from a few problems which could be solved by the Olympus service department, it always worked extremely well. About a month ago I suddenly started getting weird exposures, especially in bright sunlight near the harbour. Most shots were overexposed up to three stops. I suspected a sticky iris mechanism (which had happened once before) and sent the lens in for repair. It came back fixed last week, but the problem hasn't...

New to Olympus.I mostly photograph manual and love to have quick access to a spot meter with some button. The only option I found for the E5.2 is to use the AEL button. I tested it: works fine in P mode, but NOT in manual mode. I can access the spotmeter in manual through Live Control or Super Control but this just too cumbersome for getting a quick measurement with the spotmeter. (Firmware is up to date) Is there a step which I overlooked or a trick or is it possible to assign the spotmeter...

My wife bought a new MD-1 Mk 1, and has now come to me (an E-5 shooter) asking why she cannot get the camera into Auto Focus mode - and after looking at it and rambling around in menus, the manual and so on, I'm also now wondering why. She has followed the manual for setting focusing mode, (Lever in mode 1, pushing the AF button on top left of camera and reached to the Metering/Focusing screen). Whether we rather reach that screen simply by way of the Smart Menu screen, we anyhow get the same...

My Olympus infrared RM-1 remote control seems out of function.  I am looking for another one that would be easy to use for self-portraits., and adapted to my E5, as well as my EM1. Anyone has a suggestion?  What would you recommend? Many thanks,

I just received a new A6500 with Sigma 30mm f/1,4 and Sony 55-210mm. I first tried mounting the Sigma and found that rotating it into position was relatively difficult, it seemed very tight. I DID get it to click in, eventually, and the camera recognized the lens, but something didn't seem quite right as I had no such experience mounting lenses on my Nikon V1, Olympus OM-D E-5 or Lumix GX85.  I thought maybe it was the fact the lens was a Sigma, but I tried mounting the Sony 55-210mm and it...
