That's right, I'm still using a GF1. I bought it 2nd hand around a year ago as the cheapest way into ILCs, and have a had lots of fun learning with it. I know the answer to all 'should I upgrade from x camera to y camera' is always: 'are you unhappy with x camera? If not, keep it til you're not happy'. I'd like to know if any newer offerings address my issues with the GF1 without removing what I like about it however. I am fine with the resolution, the burst rate, the AF speed, AF points,...
Hi all: I've been using an EPL3 for about 3 years, and have accumulated a handful of lenses (listed below). I use it mostly for outdoors stuff: wildlife, landscapes, cityscapes, etc... I am heading out on a big trip to Australia and New Zealand in the fall, and was wondering what folks would recommend as the next addition to the set. I would also considering renting something higher-end for the trip instead of buying something. I currently have: -the 14-42 kit lens -the Olympus 40-150/4.0-5.6...

I have 3 year old Olympus E-PL3 and just use the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm lens that came with the camera. I had a period of not using it for maybe 6 months and when I tried to use it again whenever I connect the lens the screen goes black. Without it connected it's completely unfocused. The lens makes it clearer until it is pushed into place completely, then it goes blank. I don't have another lens to test whether it's the lens or the camera. Any ideas what's wrong or what has happened...

On the Pens, you can set the dial direction in the menu to [Custom B>Dial Direction>Menu>] either (1) CCW or (2) CW to go to the next item in the menu. I use (2), since, down in the menu and CW suits me. With my E-PL3, this has no effect on selection in the SCP, but on my E-PL6, it does! For example, when selecting IS in the SCP on the E-PL3, CW turns generate the sequence [Off -> IS1 -> IS2 -> IS3], and this is independent of the dial direction setting in menus. With my E-PL6, using dial...

It's the same with the Olympus 14-42 lens and with the Panasonic 45-150 - my Olympus E-PL3 rarely works correctly in AF mode; 90% of the time the focus goes back and forth before being secured in a completely wrong place (which the camera incorrectly reports as in-focus). I have tried cleaning the contacts; the battery is full; MF is working (seems to properly control the focus motor); I have tried updating the firmware to the newest one, and then hard resetting the in-camera options. I've no...
Has anyone had problems with yellowy/blue spots in an Olympus VF-2? First one than more and over time the display is riddled with these spots, making i t pretty hard to see what your doing! I have had this with two VF-2's, on three different camera's; two E-pl1's and a E-Pl3. Has anyone any experience with this, or preferably a fix? It's too complicated to make a decent photo of the picture inside the viewer, but anyone who has experienced this will surely know what I'm on...
Hi, I had bought a Fotodiox FD to MFT adapter that worked perfectly on my Olympus EPL3, but it focuses beyond infinity on my new OMD EM5. I am wondering if anyone had a good experience with a - preferably inexpensive - FD adapter for OMD EM5. Links would be much appreciated. If you know a quick hack to get things to work, I would also appreciate that. Thanks.
I do have a Olympus PEN LITE E-PL3 and I just found in the garbage a YASHICA 230-AF with two lenses Kyocera AF 70-210 mm and AF 35-70 mm Macro. I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS There is any adapter or converter in order to use those lenses on my Olympus? Is possible to re-chip the Kyocera AF 70-210 in order to transfer the images to digital.
