So,I have been an Olympus shooter for some months now. Own a coumple of lenses. Nocticron, Oly 17 1.8 and 12 2.0.Sold my E-P5 body recently and was almost convinced to get a E-M1 II... but the price seems that it´s going to be steep (close to 2K euros)This kind of pushed me back a little from staying in the system.I had almos made up my mind to switch to Sony FF (A7Rii) Sure, it is a bit more expensive... but I get some serious IQ and their lenses are also quite awesome.So... This is more...

Do you think there will be an EM1-MKii + 25mm 1.2 combo?that would be amazing, specially since companies usually make nice deals on lenses when paired with a body. Would be nice for olympus to pair them as a PRO prime combo alternative to jump into the new flagship.I could see that hapenning for arround 1.8... 2k. And would gladly save up some money and sell some crap I use no more to get into that.Been shootin an E-P5 with a Nocticron and a 17mm f1.8 for a While and I cannot wait to upgrade....

I was thinking on getting a nice bag for this setup: Pen E-P5 (soon to change for a OMD E-M1 (or mark II) + Nocticron + Oly 17mm 1.8 + Potentially Pana 25mm 1.4 (maybe Voigt) Would The ThinkTank Retro 5 be enough? In a more distant future I´d like to get a 75mm 1.8, would this bag still be enough? or would I be forced to leave a lens behind every time? Although... at this point I might get a new bag if necessary...Maybe the Thintank Retro 7 would be better?Any other suggestions?Thanks a lot!!
Hi! So, I finally got A Nocticron... been shooting like crazy the last few days. And while the lens is amazing. The body feels too small for it.I have an E-P5, with the EVF. But all in all it feels too unbalanced.I was thinking about switching bodies. I can get good money for my E-P5 since it is in perfect state (shutter count under 5500) and is as good as new.But I am in doubt as to what to get.OMD E-M1 seems like a good choice. Weather sealed, rugger body, a nicer grip.I could also go Pani...
So after pondering for a few days I decided I will keep my Oly 12.I was going to sell that, pay the difference and get a Nocticron.But I think I rather keep the 12 and go for a cheaper 45 (or 42.5)Now the question comes between these 2.Oly 45 1.8 or Pana 42.5 1.7.I own an E-P5 so OIS is not needed, but, that aside, and price difference between both not being a hindrance. Which would be the superior lens?Oh and... if anyone thinks that selling the 12 and going for the Nocticron is still more...
Hi everyone,Thanks in advance to everyone out here, been reading lot´s of threads in this forum for some time now. And thanks to many of your posts Q and As... I finally bought an Olympus Pen E-P5, alongside a 17mm f1.8 and a used 12mm f2.0.After playing arround with the kit 14-42--- I am quite set on primes, I don´t fancy zooms thaaat much.I am thinking maybe the focal distance between this two lenses I got is too little... and to be quite honest... the 17mm sits on my camera 99% of the...
When I try to edit a picture in the camera I get a sign that says The image cannot be edited. This holds good for every pic on the memory card. I thought that the pictures were protected so I pressed the Reset Protect button and Yes, which should delete every protection of the images. That did not help. I swapped the memory card for an older card taken with the same camera. The same thing happened, all images were protected from editing. Where is the fault, what should I do? Lars-Eric Häggman

I own Olympus E-P5 with 17mm f/1.8, 45mm f/1.8 and 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 lenses Is it worth the money to invest in Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95? I wonder how easy it is to work on its manual focus? I hope anyone with experiences can share it with me. I read a lot about Voigtlander, I wonder if the image quality is a lot better than 45mm f/1.8?

Hello guys. My E-520 has just surpassed the 32K shutter mark. Although it's showing signs of aging (dead pixels, sudden shooting mode change from A to P or SCENE, etc) but overall it's still as capable as when I first bought it used way back in 2009. I mainly shoot two kinds of subjects: slow and slower. No sports for me or BIFs. Or anything that moves fast. Now, unless I find King Solomon's mine, I won't be able to afford the E-M1 which is my first choice as I still would like to use my...
