What is the difference in FOV when using VF-4 on E-P5 comparing to EVF of E-M5 ? Are there any advantages of one over another? decided to add viewfinder due to vision becoming weaker - farsightedness, and wonder which option will be more convenient and useful? Your practical experience and suggestions are highly appreciated. --https://www.flickr.com/photos/78239183@N07/

I have a 3 1/2 year old Olympus E-P5. Yesterday it began to act funny. When I turned it on, it would not turn off and the controls did not work. I called the dealer from where I purchased it and he suggested that I perform a reset. I did so. It now seems to be working but I no longer have any anti-shock settings. I thought that it may have reverted to the original firmware. I tried updating the firmware with Olympus Digital Camera Updater but I received the message that the camera has the...

My first camera is a Olympus Pen E-P5 with Samyang 7.5, Panasonic 20/1.7, Oly 45/1.8 and Oly 12-40/2.8. I like that kit and use it for travelling and many occasions, when I have enough time for taking photos. But sometimes, for example when I am on a weekend trip with friends, I noticed I often leave the camera at home because it is too heavy and too big to take with me. But sometimes it ist just not enough having my iPhone with me. So, in short, I am looking for a second body to have with me...

How do you set the Extended ISO 100 option on the EP5 & EPL7 ? or if you can at least point me to the page number on the manual I must be getting old. Couldn't find it. Thanks Alex --Couldn't help but make me feel ashamed to live in a landWhere justice is a game. From Bob Dylan's 'Hurricane'

Good day, When using oly E-P5 with the panasonic 7-14mm f4, i found that combination produce some purple color blobs in photos whenever there're strong light source within the framing.

I'm antsy to take photos and I want to try a 24 or 28mm lens to allow me some in-door casual shooting.  I'm currently using an Olympus EP-5. I enjoyed shooting with my pentax 50mm F2 but the view is just too narrow, though the aperture does help a lot. I'm waiting and saving up for the big sales near december to get my hands on a panasonic 25mm but for now I want something I can use that's faster than the kit, but  gives good bokeh and colors (yes, i like bokeh but i know that isn't what...

I'm about to attend a wedding as a guest where the photographer has specified in his contract "no professional grade equipment is allowed" for guests. I'm looking at maybe getting a used Olympus E-P3 or E-P5 and mounting my 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ Pancake Lens and hoping I don't suffer the embarrassment of getting called down for it. Questions: Aside from the extra four megapixel in the E-P5 , how do the cameras compare in low light situations? Any differences in sharpness? Dynamic range? Image...
