Hello Everyone! So... after the Christmas chaos has settled down and prices are starting to be sensible again, I'm back to what went through my mind nearer October. Which is: compared to cameras that are not as ancient, my Olympus E-520 is deffinitely more limited in capabilities. I've liked about it: IBISThe ruggedness - dropped, used in the rain and the desert, other than the flash it all works or can be made to work.The kit lenses. (Not bright, much plastic but gotten good images out of...

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...
