My question: Has anyone upgraded from the Olympus em10 (1st version) to the em5ii for macro / close-up photography?And if so, do you now consider it a good move and why? Likes / dislikes particularly as regards to size / weight (have held the em5ii)(Note: I have searched this forum but only hit a couple of topics on this relating to photography overall not macro)But before you answer, a little about my photography interest:I entered the photography world in 2005 with the Canon xt and...

I'm contemplating upgrading from my EM1.1 and one of the things I've been wondering is whether it's possible to capture a still image from the 4K video in either of these two systems? Today, with my EM1.1, if I'm capturing video, it will pause when I capture a still shot, then return back to recording video. Ideally, I would like to be able to record video and pull stills from it later in post to avoid having to carry two cameras to a dance recital.

For those that own E-M5 II, E-M1 II or E-M10 II bodies, have you experienced the notorious 'rear dial failure' known to E-M1 Mk1 owners? --BartyLwww.facebook.com/barty.lobethal/photos_albums

I have attached a BHP bellows with a reversed EL-Nikkor lens to my EM1 but I cannot get the shutter to open. Can anyone tell me if it is possible and if so do any specific settings have to be changed. Arthur

Anybody yet has this combo? ideally on an EM1.2? though I assume all Olympus will behave similarly?  Trying to figure out if there are similar problems to the 7-14/4 or if this lens can be safely used on Olympus bodies.

When I press the MENU button on the back of my EM1 mark i the EVF goes blank. The menu does show up on the LCD but not the EVF. The eye sensor is set to switch automatically from EVF to LCD and it works perfectly for everything else. But, yesterday when I was out shooting in bright light and wanted to make a change using the Menu using the EVF there was nothing. Camera has been turned On and Off several times and even changed lenses and batteries. None of this made a difference, not that I...

Can anyone comment on the difference in stills image quality between the Olympus EM1 Mark 2 and Panasonic GH5 for landscape photography. I use a tripod and manually focus my shots and do not require IBIS, and I do not shoot video. I am looking for an upgrade to my GH4 and Olympus EM1 Mark 1.  I am currently considering the Olympus EM1 Mark 2 which seems to be slightly better than the GH5 for stills.

I hope this doesn't start a Tsunami that cannot be satisfied but, I'm going to a nature photography expo on the German Baltic coast next weekend where Olympus is a prime sponsor and will have extensive representation. Zingst photography festival I intend to spend some time at the Olympus venue and propose to ask at least one pertinent question that Oly reps might be able to answer.  Questions about firmware updates will, IMHO, be greeted with the response that HQ has control over that, and...

As those EM1.2 users know that when using Oly Pro lenses if one pulls back the focus ring to the manual focus position, you disable AF and can focus manually. That said, I notice that the manual focus is so extremely sensitive that it is difficult to focus on the intended subject. Now I now that there are manual focus assist tools that can be set up in the various menu choices. What I would like to confirm is whether there is any way to adjust the amount of manual focus throw when in manual...

Eternally greatful that Pentax kept same  mount).  When I had 2 major operations on my right wrist, so not so strong, I bought a Olympus OMD M1, mark one. because of the weight, (lighter).  Because I am a bit of a camera fenatic I also have a Sony RX100 II.
