I have an e-pm2 that I am quite satisfied with. This system is mainly used for travel where size is extremely important. Has recent progress in sensor and processing power made it worthwhile to upgrade? I am primarily interested in landscape/architecture. AF speed is not that important to me. However, IQ under moderate high ISO (~ISO 1600) is important.

I was out shooting earlier tonight with my Oly E-PM2 and my new Panasonic 12-32. About 80 shots in I clicked the shutter, and the shutter curtain closed and the camera powered off. Tried to turn the camera on again, and the camera promptly turned itself off again. I pulled off the lens and found that the shutter was stuck closed. When I try to turn the camera on, the LCD illuminates briefly, but then the sensor IS mechanism resets to home and the camera shuts off again, the shutter remaining...

I've been using an E-PM2 for a good while now, and was just curious if it was worth upgrading to the E-M10 Mark II for the viewfinder? The VF-4 seems like an awful lot of money for a viewfinder, when you get so much more for switching bodies. I've only been composing via screen the whole time, and was just curious how much of a difference an EVF makes. As far as I can see, image quality is mostly similar, so it's really down to shooting experience. I know there's the control dials and the...

I started getting into micro 4/3 with a Panasonic GF3 which came with a Panasonic 14-42 kit lens.  When I set the lens at the wide end at 14mm, I could capture a pretty wide view.   I just got a used Olympus E-PM2 and added my Panasonic 14-42 to it, but the field of view is significantly narrower than before, almost 50% of what I could see with my GF3.     In the E-PM2, there is a Scene mode called "Wide Angle" which is meant for Olympus wide angle lenses.  When I switched to this Wide Angle...

In this recent thread, there was some talk about using RawDigger and FastRAWViewer to get a more accurate report on actual RAW exposure values: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/58298914 I have looked at these two programs, and while I can see how FRV can allow more accurate view of the RAW data for bracketed shots, I am not sure that it will improve my results where I am not bracketing, and I'm reluctant to introduce more steps into my workflow, as I'm always a year or more behind...

This has happened twice since May 16.  This is a factory refurb.  I had a similar issue with my EPM2, instead of a black box, a block of the image was pasted within the image.  Should I return the EM 10?  http://www.flickr.com/photos/alfredo_tomato/

Hi all. Planning a trip to Goodwood FOS this year. I have an Oly PM2 body and 17/1.8 and 45/1.8 lenses. I plan to use 17mm for close shots, and 45mm to capture action from the distance and occational "isolated details" shots. I want to travel as light as possible (and this set is probably the lightest one possible), but not sure if 45mm will be enough. I do not mind cropping, but if a tele zoom is a must there, then I would start looking for one. Being on a budget, a used Panasonic 35-100,...

I got a kit Oly 14-42 II R with my E-PM2, and recently I noticed that the bayonet mount was exposed. I don't remember seeing that before, so I wonder if the cap/ring on the mount may have fallen off accidentally. Does this lens come with a cap on the mount or is it exposed? This is driving me crazy, wondering if I lost that cap :-( Can someone check and let me know. Thanks! --Just a pixelpusher with a love of photography

I rarely shoot video, but yesterday I had my Pany 12-32 pancake zoom on my E-PM2 recording some video while I was shooting. I noticed that the aperture kept jumping around noticeably on the video, so I switched it to manual mode (which I should have done to begin with). I recall seeing some firmware fixes for aperture issues on various lenses, so I am now curious how common this is. The camera and lens firmware are current as of last month. I had planned to shoot with my OM Zuiko 50/1.8,...

After many years of jpeg, I just started to shoot raw files, and have a question: The raw files from my EM10II are missing their EXIF file attributes, at least they are not shown in Windows (File) Explorer. The raw files from my EPM2 on the other hand display all the settings. Now when I process them with a raw editor, the resulting jpegs have their attributes back. Is this a setting in the camera somewhere?
