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...
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...
I see on my TG-3 and E-PL5, the # is built into the main tag on the bottom. On the E-M1, there's an indentation near the tripod mount — but it's empty. When I do the check for shutter actuations (32K), on page 3, I see "SC: BHP236957" Is this my Serial #? Looks like a typical Olympus pattern: 3 letters, then 6 digits. Anybody else have their SN sticker fall off? Happened on my E-5 as well... --Barry
I've got an E5 that I love. I shoot alot of sports with a Zuiko 50-200 on it. Lately getting weird stripe of overexposure and blurring at the top fifth of every frame. It runs straight across horizontally. Occassionally also seeing large black splotches on some of the images - definitely 10x the size of dust. I've sent it to repair. Came back with the same issue. There are about 80,000 actuations on it. What could be causing?

Hi, I am conflicted:-) I own a wonderful E-620 with this len that I love: Olympus Zuiko Digital Lens AF 14-54mm f2.8-3.5 MK II And cause E-620 was released in 2009, I was thinking to update it with a new one.. So these my options: 1) Olympus E-M1 + adapter + old Zuiko len 2) E-M5 II with new PRO len 3) Olympus Olympus E-5, with the improved Truepic VI and the possibility to use my actual len Factors are total price, benefits of smaller sizes and of course final image quality.. Any...
Morning everyone. I recently purchased a second hand Olympus E-5. It works amazingly well, with the exception that there are not camera setting details being displayed through the viewfinder. Does anyone know if there is a setting that I should check, or is it possibly that section of the lcd is not working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Attached image of what I see compared to what I should see. What I actually see through my viewfinder What I should see, but its not there
Hi, im new here, but i just bought an olympus evolt e-510 camera along with a usb cord. i read the instructions, and installed the olympus master 2, as well as the updater, but my main problem is that my windows 7 computer cannot recognize any of settings i put it on. i know it is an old camera, but I have my doubts that its windows 7 that wont recognize it. i have searched and come across a few answers, but none of them worked for me. if you have an answer, or give me a link to one i haven't...
So I have an older E510 that seems to be on it's last legs. The LED in the viewfinder is gone and the flash doesn't work. Doing a little googling tells me that the main board is going. So it's a good excuse to get a new camera but here is my problem. When I bought the E510, I got it with the 2 kit lenses, (14-42 and 40-150) but just last year I bought myself a used Sigma 70-200. Now I would like to stay with Olympus so I can use the Sigma lens but from reading a little more I see that even...
