i am enjoying my new E-M1.II and particularly like the 7-14 2.8 lens with it. I haven’t figured out the L-Fn button on the lens and would love to know what purpose it serves and how I would use it. Thanks in advance for any replies!

Fun thread: Although I have some time to decide, I'm daydreaming about what to do for next year's trip to Tanzania. Last time I visited, I took my E-520 and the 70-300mm with EC-14 (and, of course a couple of others.) It was ok, but I could obviously have done better. Now, a few years later, I have a bit more experience and an E-M1. I'll have the same in-country driver and similar locations. Torn between options: Keep the E-M1 and 70-300mm/EC-14 Upgrade to E-M1ii OR get an additional body,...

Greetings everyone, I recently bought a FL-600R off of eBay to give my FL-50R a rest, and lighten the weight of my camera a bit.  Most of my photography these days is indoors with low ceilings, so the power reduction has been fine and overall I'd say that I'm pleased with the performance of the FL-600R.  Not going to sell the FL-50R, but the FL-600R stays mounted on the camera. But I'm curious about something... with the FL-50R, tilting the head to bounce would cause the head to zoom out to a...

I recently bought an E-M1, used, and the Beep Sound menu item in the detailed camera options, menu D, is dimmed. I can't seem to turn the beep sound on or off.  It is off now. I would guess that some other menu setting has caused this, but what?

Hi, I would very much appreciate some advice here. I’m photographing a flamenco school show tomorrow, something I’ve done many times before, but this time I may, probably, need to do video as well as the video guy (girl actually) can’t make it. I don’t do video. But I believe my E-M5ii does. Unfortunately the manual is totally useless in this regard. I’ve never paid much attention to video, or to be more precise, not much in the last 10 years. The deal is I will try to film the show from a...

I'm using Fuji x-Pro2 which is said to have PDAF, I also checked my friend's E-M1 ii which also has PDAF, however none of these two mirrorless cameras focus faster than my father's 5D iii, which is a few years older than any of the mirroless. So my question is: 1. Are PDAF on different cameras all the same (not considering other factors like processor speed, etc)? 2. Given the fact that different cameras with PDAF focuses differently, what're the other factors that affect AF speed of...

i have been shooting for 43 and m43 for about 10 years, and have an assortment of lenses in both mounts. About 2 years ago I picked up an rx100ii for use as a pocket camera and also as a housed dive camera. The IQ has been very nice, with my eyes, as good as m43 except with extreme peeping. Been considering the RX10iv instead of a long lens for the EM1. With two trips next year , a bridge camera would really  lighten the carry on load. Any thoughts on what would be any down sides. Anyone...

I have a chance to go to the high arctic to shoot wildlife (birds, polar bears, etc). I'm told I need a minimum 450mm and better (35mm equiv). I'm struggling with the high purchase price of Oly 300 f4 lens. I already have 70-150 PRO lens (with 1.4 adapter but I don't like the results with the adapter). Has anyone had experience with other long lenses they can share with me.  I've toyed with the idea of buying a Bridge camera like the Sony RX10 iv - would that be a reasonable alternative?
