I know....this seems like a simple question. BUT....hear me out. I DID try to look this up on the internet. I know it says, on their web site, that the resolution is 2.36M-dot.  However, that's not what I am looking for.  I know the Sony A6000 has a 800 by 600 resolution. And the A6300 has a 1024 by 768 resolution but I cant find the same information with Olympus.  Do they hold this close to their chest, or am I just using the wrong search terms?

I'll be trying out the GX8 this week.  I was wondering how the 4-Axis Stabilization works.  In particular, has anyone had experience with the GX8 and the E-M5 Mark II?  I owned a E-M5 II and I was wondering how the IBIS compares, irl?  Thanks!

Hi all, so I've been shooting with my first digital camera with an interchangeable lens for a while. I also have no film camera background but I’m really interest in an old glasses adapted into a modern camera for it’s affordable price and it’s unique characters. Do you have any suggestion for an affordable legacy lens? Which system mount should I look into? I already owned a few c mount lens such as Fujian, Zonlai, Cosmical but I’m still looking for something more unique. I’m thinking of...

Getting ready to head out to Yosemite and mounted a rented Panasonic 8-18 lens onto my Olympus E-M5 II. Do I leave the stabilizer on the lens turned on or should I turn it off? Anything else I should be aware of? --Check out my photography and blog posts at https://five.photos

It started a month or two ago. Turning off or on my camera does nothing - the moment the battery is inserted the camera powers up. I now need to eject my batteries to stop them from running down within minutes. It sometimes appears to respect the auto-sleep feature, but often not. 1) Is there some option I accidentally changed? 2) Is it the 3rd party batteries (Wasabi) that could be causing it to not shut down? 3) Could it be that it got damp or that the on-off switch is broken? A week or so...

Aloha from the Big Island. Just got an E-M5 II in the mail from eBay and there is a hair on the sensor.  I blew gently from far away and it moved, which is how I knew it's a hair and not a scratch, but it's stuck along the side of the sensor and didn't come out.   I don't have a hand air blower, I thought that would be the best way.  I was wondering if anyone has any other suggestions, or if I need to but a blower and try that first. Thanks!

Hi! I am using since more than a year a E-M5 II. I love the body size and its capabilities (body stabilisation first of all!)  that for me represent the reason why I am in the MFT world (I made my first pic in digital with a E-500, first one with the auto-cleaning of sensor..). I am not a genius of the composition, and sometimes I need to crop during the post processing, so I am a bit tired of these 16MP when the whole world is already from 20 onwards and tired of waiting for the mark III. I...

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...
