I'm in a bit of a quandary. I have a m4/3 kit based around an EM1 mki, EM10, and EP5 with the Olympus f2.8 zooms and 4 nice primes. At this stage I'm looking to get more into video -  i already shoot quite a bit - and so I want a more video capable camera with 4K. The EM1 mkii would be nice but doesn't have all the video functions I need so consequently I'm looking at the GH5. My question is the Panasonic DFD focus is based only upon Panasonic lens profiles so if I get a GH5 will using my...

We went for an evening drive last weekend on rumors of Snow Geese and Bald Eagle fledglings, only to discover one of my two E-P5s has lost its focus, no matter which lens is mounted or which focus mode I select. Even MF gets no response from focus ring turns. 1. Current firmware: 1.7 2. Full Reset 3. Removed battery for a time Has anyone something else I should give a try? Thank you. --Bill UPDATE: The body appears to be unable to detect a lens is mounted. Firmware display only shows Camera...

Hello. I own an omd-10 olympus camera. After taking some long exposures photos i notice some round dusts fog dusts and a hair dust. using a lens soft cloth i remove the hair and some dust from sensor. After i took a sample photo using a method (that i read in internet) so i can examine better my sensor. And still there is some round fogs dusts around the sensor.

I am debating between the GX-850 and E-PL8 as a second m43 camera. My main one is an E-P5 with a bunch of non-OIS lenses Oly (75/1.2, 45/1.8, 7-14/2.8) and Pana (25/1.4, 20/1.7, 14/2.5).I'm leaning towards the GX with its 12-32 OIS lens for portability and a more useful LCD (flip-up vs. flip-down) but also plan to use my non-OIS lenses on it  as needed.I mainly shoot stills (travel, architecture, occasional street). Would the E-PL8 (with EIS) provide me with better image quality with since...

Hi I am new to Olympus, and I have a Pen E-P5 body/12-40 F2.8 Lens combo.So far it's a great camera, but it's sufficiently different from my Pentax that I have a question. My camera body makes a whirring noise when it's on, and the shutter is depressed.  Is this normal? I can't be sure, but it also seems that the microphone is on all the time, and it's playing what it hears back through the speakers - even when I am shooting stills (I don't shoot movies). Can anyone shed any light on this for...

From my local online forum I got three option of Olympus body kit lenses for around 400 Euro: 1. OMD-M10 II + 14-42 mm for 440 Euro 2. E-P5 + 14-42mm + 40-150mm for 410 Euro, and 3. E-PL7 + 14-42mm for 390 Euro I haven't used any micro four third camera and I want to try it with a limited budget. There is also a possibility to expand my kit if I get something fun with this system. Electronic viewfinder is not my main concern, since I never used it and in my opinion, the LCD is enough. My...

Hey people A while back I asked for lens suggestions and the consensus was I'm long overdue a camera body upgrade, with the most common suggestion being the EM10 II. Having done a bit of looking about at the second hand market, I've noticed I can get an EP5 for a good bit cheaper than an EM10 II or even an EM10 or EM5, and I can't see why that isn't the way to go. It's got the 5 axis IS of the EM5/EM10 II, with a better screen than the EM5 and features that camera doesn't have such as WiFi...
