Hello Guys, I want to buy a Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II and I wonder if I can buy some sort of focal reducer (e.g. the Roxsen (also known as Camdiox) OR a Zhongyi Lens Turbo II) to be able to use my existing set of vintage Canon FD Lenses with the new camera. Maybe somebody has the E-M5 or the E-M5 II and uses it with some kind of focal reducer and can share some thoughts on that? Thanks in advance SKlanfurt

Hey guys. After hours of research, watching reviews, im at a point, where i dont know which camera to choose. First off all, ill tell you what im goin to shoot. Landscape / Nature / Animals; Portraits; My daughter which will soon begin running around. I already selected the lenses im goin to need / buy. Olympus 17mm, 45mm, 75mm 1.8 primes, a 14-140 Panasonic as my "shootanything" lens and traveling, and the Pana 100-300 for Wildlife (yea i know the 100-400 is out but thats to much money) So....
I recently read,"Note that from the Olympus OM-D E-M5 mark II camera and onwards, Olympus has added a new hot shoe pin which provides battery power to dedicated Olympus flash units and thus Canon-compatible flash units should NOT be used directly on the hot shoe or via a TTL cord without a dummy adapter which ignores the additional pins!" What sort of product should I buy to overcome this problem. Thanks
Hello Friends, I am a Happy OMD EM5 user from last 3 years. I always wanted to have a wide angle lens( 12-14 MM equivalent on Full frame) but current M4/3 offerings are out of my budget. I am not very keen on manual focus alternatives.I am getting an Canon 5D ( 2005 release) and sigma 10-22 lens in around 300 GBP. so I will get a full frame camera and super wide angle coverage in low cost.... Is this smart or stupidity ? :-) Suggestions requested... Thanks Vishal
hello. i have the em10 and i bought also the flash meike m320. And i need some information so i can understand the how the ttl flash work. I notice that in TTl mode the flash F changes when you change the camera Aperture. so this means that the camera and flash are pair together. The maximum aperture of the flash is the F2.8. My questions is ..how this flash understand the focal length of each lens. for example i have the 12-40 olympus lens in F2.8. so the flash will pair to F2.8. but what...
Hi All, I had recently purchase the OMD EM5 Mark II with the Olympus 25mm f1.8 lens. While the lens works great for portrait photos, I'm in need of another lens for landscape + portrait. e.g. lens that I can use to take close up shots of family/friends (within 5ft or so distance) with landscape. I'm assuming a smaller lens, with shallower DOF, will work. e.g. panasonic 14mm pancake. However, I am new to photography and don't want to risk wasting money, getting the wrong lens, based on an...
In this recent thread, there was some talk about using RawDigger and FastRAWViewer to get a more accurate report on actual RAW exposure values: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/58298914 I have looked at these two programs, and while I can see how FRV can allow more accurate view of the RAW data for bracketed shots, I am not sure that it will improve my results where I am not bracketing, and I'm reluctant to introduce more steps into my workflow, as I'm always a year or more behind...
Help me figure out what camera to buy. I think I’m technically a bit better than an absolute beginner, but still a beginner. I’ve gotten many good shots, but it has been because the circumstances have been good, like the light was great and I framed something okay and out of several tries I got a good shot; not so much because I have mastered the settings on the camera and it was super deliberate. Does that make sense? I have a general understanding of speed/aperture concepts and the very...
Hey ho, is there any good book about the PEN-F? Something like the Mastering the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II, but, well, for the PEN-F. I couldn't find anything besides the Olympus Pen F guide on amazon, which seems to be not that recommendable. So, is there any "hidden" book or something like that? Greets,as
