I got more and more into birding during the last two years and adapted a bit my equipment (45-175 > 75-300 ; EM10>EM5.2>EM1.2) and post-processing (now dxo2 with PRIME and default sharpening). I also improved my technique to the point where there are some bird shots I am pleased with. However, I am sometimes / often disappointed with IQ. The answer is a mix of technique (getting closer to crop less), glass and post-processing. I would like to hear from the M43 birders where they would go from...

The manual says that for m43 lenses my e-m5 shouldn't need me to input a focal length in the image stabilization settings, and so I don't think the menu should be letting me do that while an m43 lens is on the camera. But it's letting me today, I noticed, both with my Olympus 12-50 kit lens and with my 75-300, which is likewise Olympus m43. I wonder if my camera is not properly reading lenses, of if there's some other setting somewhere that I don't know or don't remember, which makes the...
Hi, I just switched to M43 and the Olympus OMD EM5 II. I love it so far and don't regret moving on from DSLR. I already took some great shots with my Zuiko 12-40mm f2.8 Pro and Zuiko 75-300mm II lens. Now, upon reviewing photos (with the 75-300mm) I notice some weird distortions. Can someone explain what I'm seeing? You need to compare the two pics to see the difference. I know these are horrible pictures ;-) But why is the background all shifted/distorted? What 's the cause of this? Thanks...
I have a couple of questions regarding the rings on my two new lenses to check if they are indeed within intended tolerance levels. 12-40 f/2.8 Zoom ring is firm mostly in the center. It becomes smooth around 12-16mm (the point where the lens protrudes back out), then rather firm, almost, but not at the point of feeling a slight grinding resistance. Then at the long end, close to 35mm it becomes smooth again. Is this normal? Does it perhaps needs a slight breaking period? The reason why I ask...

Help me to decide: Choice 1 ) Keep OM-D EM-1 and get PL100-400 Choice 2 ) Get coming OM-D EM-1 mkii and get Oly 75-300 ii Currently use EM-1 with old 75-300 for sport shootings under the bright sun (surfing, kitesurfing) when extra reach is needed (for close range nothing can be better than 40-150 2.8) Welcome all comments !

Hello! As I've explained before , I'm moving from DSRL to M43, and I'm looking for a initial set of lenses. I have the current setup in mind: - OM-D E-M5 II; - Oly 12-40 PRO; - Oly 75-300 II; - Oly 45mm 1.8. The 12-40 is a no-brainer, it's my first choice and I'll stick to it. The 75-300 II came to replace the 40-150 R, in order to give me more room to try some telephoto shots. The 45mm 1.8 is becoming the elephant in the room. I love the shots, the sharpness all along the frame, but I'm...
Has anyone done some test to compare the Olympus 75-300mm II at 300mm, against the 40-150mm f/2.8 + 1.4x teleconverter at 210mm cropped to match the former? I currently have a 75-300mm II and I'm looking to replace it with a faster lens. I have the budget for the Olympus 300mm f/4, but I think the 40-150mm f/2.8 can be more useful for me overall. Just when to know what I should expect from the 40-150 + TC, and if I would really lose any reach. Thanks!

I'm have an urge for a 'sniper' (super tele) and I'm therfore trying to decide whether to get the Oly 40-150mm pro + MC-14, Oly 75-300mm II or Pana 100-300mm for my E-M10 II. The cost is not an issue if the price difference gives parallel better results. For me size, weight and AF is important when my girlfriend and friends use it, but of course IQ is crucial. I'm looking for the most fun and versatile super zoom tele lens. I'm buying used, so the current prices are Olympus 40-150 pro, 1:2.8...

Hi, Have strange issue i can't seem to get my head around on the OMD EM1 and the viewfinder image versus the image taken. In aperture priority at f7.1, ISO 200, SP 400, Spot Metering, Manual Infinity Focus my EVF and optical viewfinder displays a nice picture of the moon and records the image. In Manual mode with all the above same settings the Moon appears as a white overexposed/out of focus blob in both viewfinders. The EV meter also shows off the scale at -3EV. However the picture records...
