Hi. I'm looking for any insights on this puzzle. I recently bought a second hand zuiko 7-14 f4. Beautiful to have and to hold. BUT the images through my EM1 are barely useable. Most of the poor edge definition is resolved by by 14mm. I'm using a non OEM adapter which works well with the zuiko 12-60. The kicker? The lens works WONDERFULLY on my E520 at same ISO and aperture. It's everything people celebrate. Thoughts? Thanks in advance from a puzzled forum newbie. @7mm f4 1/60 ISO...
Hello Oly old timers I got myself a used Oly 50 mm f2 . Always thought of buying this lens after reading the raving reviews but rather invested in m4/3 the last years . For 200 euros made the jump . This lens is excellent, and I still have a weakness for 4/3 lenses that have imho a little "something" that m4/3 lenses haven't . Comparison that comes to mind is naturally the Oly 45 mm 1.8 , I find the latter more "clinical" although very good . I fancied putting the lens on my old E520 , which...

Hello guys. My E-520 has just surpassed the 32K shutter mark. Although it's showing signs of aging (dead pixels, sudden shooting mode change from A to P or SCENE, etc) but overall it's still as capable as when I first bought it used way back in 2009. I mainly shoot two kinds of subjects: slow and slower. No sports for me or BIFs. Or anything that moves fast. Now, unless I find King Solomon's mine, I won't be able to afford the E-M1 which is my first choice as I still would like to use my...
Recently I switched from my old Olympus E520 to Nikon D5300. I can't say I am to happy with it, as the rate of really sharp photos is quite low with my new camera. :( I definitely don't exclude the possibility that I am doing something wrong, but it seems to me to odd, that almost all photos are to soft. That's why I made some focus test pictures. I used the AF-P 18-55mm kit lens. I had a tungsten light above the test page, and took pictures with and without flash. Would you mind to help...
Hello. I just purchased a 520 plus short kit lens. It did not come with a memory card, so I am now waiting for Amazon to send me one. However, as nice shape as the kit is, I still have 2 questions. Does the Image Stabilizer operate continuously or must it be turned on each time I pick up the camera? And, where do I find a selector to take B&W photos?

I ordered a Nikon-4/3 adapter that arrived from Hong Kong today in the mail, and quick test with a Nikkor 200mm telephoto left me with a question: What settings should I be using on my E-520? I had assumed that aperture-priority "A" would be the right choice -- indeed, it works fine on my Olympus PL-2 -- but on a few test shots I experienced a long lag between pressing the shutter release and having the shutter actually fire. Switching to "Auto" resulted in immediate shutter release. This is...
Help please! Last year I bought a 50mm f/2 - great lens - and spent a few months playing around with it. Put it away then for the 12-60mm which has been on almost continuously. Dug out the 50mm out a few days ago again and found that I couldn't get it to focus - at all. The focus ring spun smoothly, but stayed on infinity. Posted a question about this in the beginner forum before I was helpfully pointed here. I was assuming I had forgotten how to use the lens, since it's a bit different than...

I have an e520 now with the 14-42, 14-54 MK1 and 40-150 MK1, and was looking to get the EM1 so I could use both the 14-54 and 40-150 again as those lenses work very well for me now on the 520. But buying a new EM1 is looking like its too expensive. Even used is climbing to heights out of reach. what is the consensus for the gray market cameras on ebay and getting a warranty from squaretrade (likely)? That adds up to around $950 or so, whereas KEH can have a camera and warranty for $850....
