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 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...

I recently went to Zimbabwe with my 5-yr old OMD EM5. I got some amazing shots, but was frustrated enough with the autofocus that I have now purchased the OM-D EM-1 Mk II. I haven't had it long enough to do much with it yet. I am considering a lens upgrade since Olympus has a trade-in sale going on. My current lenses include M.Zuiko 40-150mm ED f4-5.6 M.Zuiko ED 60mm 2.8 macro M.Zuiko ED 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 M.Zuiko ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3  I am looking at the PRO 12-40 vs the 12-100. I would love...

hi, please help! i was using the Olympus Camera Updater to update the firmware on my Omd Em5 and the Olympus 12~50mm lens. the camera updated perfectly but during the lens update process it just hung there for easily 15 minutes before i stopped the process. now, the lens is no longer listed under as a device in the updater for me to activate firmware update again. the camera cannot see through the lens, it shows black/blank thru view finder/screen. any advice greatly appreciated!

Hello! I have a question for Olympus Pen-F users, I am a jpeg shooter and I'm still using Olympus OMD EM5. I often use bracketing( Natural with Pinhole and Monochrome Art filters). With Olympus Pen-F, can I bracket Natural,Color Profile 2 and Monochrome Profile 2? Can I also bracket some art filters together with the above? Thanks, Jimmy

Very excited, just yesterday I received my EM5 and 7-14 PRO lens! Spent all last night diving into the camera's menus and I've mostly got things configured to my liking. Not as bad as I had feared. One thing has me stumped: On the LCD, the image does not show behind the Super Control Panel. Though it does through the EVF. How do I turn it on on the LCD? Thanks in advance!

The seller said to me that is possible an OM4T prototype as this camera belongs to his father he works for many year in olympus. in the front side of the camera near OM4 there was a T red letter sticker that was placed Near 4 ( like 4T). when i received this camera as an amateuro i thought that this camera is An OM4 and just somebody sticks there the T letter. I placed it on ebay to sell like an OM4 camera and a person message me that the up side...

Hi, I've had my Olympus OM-D EM5 ii for a few months and the LCD was working fine until suddenly, it just switches off when I pull it out or flip it up. I am not if I had accidentally changed something. Anyone else has this problem? Any suggestion would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
