Hey guys, Please have a look at this photo: Olympus OM-D E-M5 II / M.Zuiko 12-40mm f2.8 PRO // 15mm // f5.6 // 1/1250 // ISO 200 It was shot with a good camera, a top lens, low ISO and shutter speed during daylight. The focus was set on the bridge at an aperture of f5.6 which should provide a fairly deep DoF. This is the ooc file and I think it's just not really good in terms of image quality... Yes, it was foggy that day but otherwise the conditions were not extraordinary. And yet, the photo...

Hello, hoping you can help me settle on a camera. I am looking to get into the mirrorless camera market and have settled on Olympus due to the lens ecosystem at an affordable price. I travel quite often and enjoy both photographing my trips as well as recording video (for short travel videos). Since I often hike in remote areas, its enjoyable to get some astro shot as well such as the milky wy. In the past, I have used a GoPro and Canon SL1. My goal with the Olympus is to merge the two into a...

I just moved from a Panasonic Lumix GH4 to an Olympus OM-D E-M5 II and I really love the camera (after getting use to the different menus and controls.  Only thing I'm disappointed about is that unlike the Lumix, there is no focus indicator when you adjust manual focus on the lens. Which is annoying because as all of you know, M43 lenses are fly-by focusing.  What do you guys do to get around this? It seems somewhat counter intuitive to have to move the focus ring only to realise you're going...

Hi Everbody, I've read the user manual (downloaded from Olympus's website), and also went to local retail to ask the sales but they didn't give the answer. I'm still not sure these 3 cameras can take several hi-res photos with different exposures automatically. Hope someone here would tell me. Thanks.

A lot of my 4/3 shooting is street and close quarters. Back in the days of shooting film with my beloved OM-1 bodies (best 35mm film cameras ever IMO!), I generally had a 24mm lens on one and a 50 on the other. The 24mm was great, with just enough distortion to get it all in and make things interesting without looking all fisheyed. On my OM-D M5 Mk II I have a 25mm for my regular street lens, but am undecided between adding a 12mm (which of course would be equivalent to my old 24mm), or...

Howdy guys, So I'm selling my Sony a5100 because I've been nothing but underwhelmed by 85% of the photos I take with it using the stock PZ16-50 lens. I'm not ready to start adding a ton of expensive Sony lenses in an attempt to match my needs. I work part time reviewing for a golf website and take a lot of product photos and willing to add a prime lens to cover that area, but would like a general lens too that captures good golf course, landscape and street pics too. I've considered DSLR and...

Does anyone know of a menu map for m43 cameras? Personally, I would like to have one for the E-M5 II and the GH5.

This is going to be long (sorry). If you don't feel like reading please skip to the bottom line. Hi, I'm currently studying in Beijing, China. I love travel around shooting landscape when ever I have a chance. Most of the time I got stuck in Beijing doing street snapshot. My gear is EM5II, Oly 12-40, Mitakon 25 f0.95, Samyang 7.5 f 3.5, Laowa 7.5 f2. I've been using EM5II for 2 years now, very happy with it, light weight and capable as everyday and travel camera. During last semester I...

My distance eyesight without glasses is about 20/30, which normally requires less than 1 diopter of correction.  However I'm finding that I need to dial the EVF diopter adjustment to its limit (minus), which seems surprising since according to the specs the diopter range is -4 to +2.  On various other cameras (Canon, Sony, Fuji) I can see the EVF clearly with plenty of adjustment to spare. Has anyone else encountered this?

Hi, From the super menu I can see two shortcuts to settings A and G, they change the picture colours, but I could't find the section in the manual to know more, what are they? Thanks in advance! Fabio
