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...
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?
