I am currently looking at the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and the Panasonic Lumix G9 for a possible, hopefully near-future upgrade to my E-M5. The goal is, mainly, to get better continuous autofocus. The lens I use most at the moment is the Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8, along with the 1.4x teleconverter. I don't think I will replace it with a Panasonic equivalent for DFD, hence my question: Has anyone tried using continuous autofocus with one of the latest Panasonic cameras, and an Olympus "PRO"...

How fast is the readout speed of the 20MP sensor of the Pen-F? I wan't to try to estimate how severe the rolling shutter effect of the Pen-F is. If you use the electronic shutter the data of a single image takes some time to been read. Faster readout means lower rolling shutter. The OMD EM5 II has a readout speed of 1/20s. The Panasonic GM1 has a readout speed of 1/25s. The OMD EM1 II is said to be twice as fast as the Pen-F. But how fast is this?

One of the reasons i left m43 was that my favorite uwa lens (panasonic 7-14m) had purple mess when used on olympus bodies. Did olympus ever fix that issue? https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3946187 https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/50849916 "Olympus 7-14 does purple blobs too." http://trevinchow.com/blog/2012/10/24/olympus-om-d-e-m5-panasonic-7-14-bad-combo/ "Olympus OM-D E-M5 + Panasonic 7-14 = Bad Combo"

I have had an Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark I for five years and have been very happy with it.  I'm now looking to upgrade, but sticking with M4/3 as I have an investment in several lenses.  I will retain the old camera as a second camera when I need to have two set-ups at the ready, e.g. for wildlife trips. I need to decide whether to go for the E-M5 Mark II, the E-M1 or indeed a Panny or other brand M4/3. In terms of what benefits I am looking to get I'd say: 1. overall still image quality is the...

Do you know a good Android app that can trigger the shutter of my Pentax K10D on bulb mode?  So far the only apps that seem to work (kind of) are Camera IR Remote (shoots on whatever speed the camera is on and that's it) and DSLR Remote (same result).  Those apps (and every other one on the app store for that matter) are supposed to work with my Pentax and every single camera with a IR sensor, but I've tried them on the K10D, my Olympus EM5 and a Canon XSi and got the same results.  I have a...

Just when I started for a 4 week trip, had to find out that the 1/4000 shutter speed on my Oly E-M5 Mk1 is failing: pictures are very, very dark, almost pitch black (but not completely). Seems this happens only at 1/4000, all other shutter speeds look ok. As I rather seldom use this shutter setting home in Germany, I have no idea whether this is a new fault or an old one... Did anyone experience similar problems with his/her E-M5?

I've been googling around and haven't found much on this topic. I've got an original Olympus OMD E-M5, shooting with a 12-40 Pro. I took a trip recently and my photos looked quite fine on the camera's LCD display. I'm shooting in RAW only, so I guess I'm seeing the lower res JPEG previews. When I got home and into Lightroom, I was surprised to see that most of my photos were significantly underexposed and full of noise. Most of the shots were around ISO 200-640. I've attached a screenshot and...

Hello: My OMD EM5 m2 will not let me access the contents in Shooting Menu 2.  I can land on the camera symbol with the 2 beside it, but nothing happens when I toggle right to get into the menu items.  I can access all the other categories in the menu system just fine, and the right toggle works normally in all other functions.  I tried doing a reset, and this condition didn't change.  I tried making the settings identical on my second camera body, and this problem did not arise.  I've been...

I'm new to photography and this camera !  It's just  a silly thing but there is a green square icon with a basket in it on the top left hand of screen and I can't find it in the manual.  Any ideas ?  Thank you !

I'm taking a trip to the countryside to take some astrophotography pictures with an old manual lens from my first camera: a Super Takumar 50mm f 1,4 (M42 mount).  I've used it before with an Olympus EM5 and the Orion constellation fits perfectly on a 100mm equivalent. I'll shoot with that camera and my good old trusty Pentax K10D.  So, here's the question: I know the focal lenght of the lens changes with the sensor size, but what about the distance scale?  In short, if I put the focus on the...
