A lot of my 4/3 shooting is street and close quarters. Back in the days of shooting film with my beloved OM-1 bodies (best 35mm film cameras ever IMO!), I generally had a 24mm lens on one and a 50 on the other. The 24mm was great, with just enough distortion to get it all in and make things interesting without looking all fisheyed. On my OM-D M5 Mk II I have a 25mm for my regular street lens, but am undecided between adding a 12mm (which of course would be equivalent to my old 24mm), or...

Hi, I want to use the Olympus OM-D E-M10's kit lens (Olympus M.Zuiko 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 IIR) with the macro converter Olympus MCON-P02 to shoot macro. My question is: can I use a ring flash with this setup? If so, can someone please provide a link to a compatible flash/controller and adapter, if necessary? Cheers, M

Would You exchange Olympus 14-42/3.5-5.6 II R MSC with Panasonic Lumix 12-32/3.5-5.6 for IQ reasons and not taking focal range into account? Body - Oly E-PL5 --https://www.flickr.com/photos/78239183@N07/

OK, this might sound like a really really stupid question, but I am compelety new to this. I was shooting stars and hoping to catch a few meteor (unfortunately didn't get any) using E-M10 and kit lens. I live in Arizona, US, and the weather was just around freezing point, humidity was like 30 something. I took the camera out, set it and start time-lapse for 30 mins. After that I started to notice that the image seems foggy so I wipe it off (I have UV filter) and it seems fine again. I did...

I've been reading a few threads asking similarly vague questions lately, and found some of the responses have been quite interesting, so I thought I'd air my query as well. Please skip if you've had enough of such drivel. :) I think my profile lists my current kit, but basically I moved from an E-410 + 14-42, 40-150 and 35 macro to an E-M5 +12-50 almost 3 years ago. Shortly after that, I picked up an E-PM2 with 14-42 and 40-150 kit for $299CDN, which was a no brainer, since I wanted the...

Hello everybody, thank you for your helpfull postings I read over here! After shooting with a Voigtländer Vitoret DR some time ago I'm now going back to photography with an EM10 + above kit lens. I haven't been able to try it as I didn't realise that an SDHC was not included (I'm new to the digital realm :-).So I was wondering if Sandisk Extreme 45MBr/w would be sufficient or should I go for 80MB write speed (samsung's newest MD-G32D is said to be as quick as Xtreme Pro & affordable but is...

I have both lenses and want to sell one, but I'm having a heck of a time figuring out which is sharper. I scoured the net looking for a site that objectively reviewed both lenses, but none exist.  So I decided to test it myself just to compare.  Unfortunately, I'm getting strange results. The Panasonic seems to capture a wider frame and seems to have different perspective than the Olympus. Can anyone help me understand what's going on here?  Also if someone can tell me which lens is better,...

Hi, My friend's lens, already off warranty. The cameras won't properly recognize the lens, they either see as it is not extend or not recognize the lens at all. Olympus Thailand said it probably the bad cable and wants to charge a lot for fixing it (~$180!). So, I'd like to try fixing it for her. Any suggestion?
