Hi guys, as a little background, I'm a beginner photographer -well not quite yet, but I am trying to get into photography- and I was wondering which camera would be the better choice? I am aware that tech specs wise, the E-PL3 is one generation ahead of the E-PL2. I was wondering however how big the difference in performance is. The thing is that I dislike the ergonomics of the e-pl3 since I do have abnormally large hands. Also, which would be better for a beginner - both in terms of use and...

Does the LED AF Assist illumination work (without manually turning on the LED) using the FL-600R on an E-PL2?

I have both an XZ-2 and an E-PL2 and I'm considering to trade in the E-PL2 for a new E-M5.My current cameras tend to have trouble locking focus on moving objects like playing children for instance. According the the review of the E-M5, this is also an area of weakness of that camera.I would like to know how much the focus reliability of the E-M5 has improved, compared to the XZ-2 or E-PL2.Thanks!

My first DSLR was the Nikon D3100, which I only used for a couple of months before receiving a trade offer (non-photography related) that was too good to refuse. At first I thought I'd buy the Nikon D5100, but I've stumbled into the world of MILCs, and the smaller/lighter benefits seem to outweigh the negatives for my purposes.I'm leaning toward M43 MILCs as opposed to:1. the larger sensor MILCs. I like the idea of smaller/lighter lenses and the larger sensor MILCs like Canon's offering, lose...

I'm new to this and need some guidance.  If I were to buy the Panasonic Lumix 7-14mm for my Pen E-PL2 (which a good number of folks think is better than the Olympus 9-18mm [am I opening a can of worms here?]) would I lose any auto focus capability since it is not an Olympus product?  This is key for me because I'll need auto focus with a lens as I'll be in a helicopter taking pictures and I'm as slow as molasses trying to manually focus.  Thank you.

On my E-PL2 the video button can be assigned to other functions in the same way as the Function button. Is this true of the E-PM2?--Nick Spurrier

Hi,I've been running the 25mm 1.4 through its paces on my E-PL2, and tonight I noticed some bands of color/darkness on the screen: It wasn't exceedingly bright in the room at the time, just a lamp + overhead light. This was much more noticeable in person, and mostly disappeared when aiming at a darker object.The thing that is puzzling me is that earlier I heard some rattlesnake noises from the lens while pointing it at the bright sky & mountains - expected. But while I had these bands - no...

I have also Oly 14-150 and 45 lenses. The 14-42 appeals as it's shorter when I need a zoom to use with flash (rarely), but the 12-50 is weatherproofed, has macro, and power zoom. Seems no point in keeping both. What's your experience of IQ between these lenses IF you have owned them both? Of course the 14-150 could mean I sell them both and have a lighter kit, as I did with the E-PL2 previously - never used its 14-42 lens! Thanks for any input.

I just got a new E-PL2, to use as a backup / second camera to my OMD.  While testing it, I took a few shots with the Dramatic Tone art filter, capturing RAW+JPG images.  I was surprised to see dark splotches at the top of the JPG photos (see attached samples).   The dark areas do not show up on the RAW files; only the dramatic tone JPG's that were processed in-camera.The lens was my 20mm Panasonic 20mm.  I initially thought that the UV filter was causing the problem so I took it off and tried...
