super quick question. I have an EP5 I just bought, and I want a leather case for it. I have the option of buying an EP5 case all the way from aliexpress (china) which will take almost 2 months to get here, or  I can spend an extra $8 to have an EPL case within the week. Will the EPL5 case fit my EP5? or am I better off waiting? (i live in the philippines)

Hello there, I was pondering to replace (not in the near future), my "old" G6 with a new m4/3 body which must be environmentally sealed. Long story short: all in all, looking at what the available camera offers at this moment, I've thought that the G80, for me and my needs, is the best overall compromise. BUT, this morning, having some spare minutes to burn on the web, I was just checking on the DXO Mark website how the G80 performs compared to what I already have (G6 and E-PL5) and, to my...

I'm new to the Olympus OMD EM-1 having upgraded from an E-PL5 which I've used for the last couple years.  Day 2 shooting with the EM-1: 75 shots then all of a sudden both my LCD and EVF screens went dark. Tried turning the camera on/off several times, cycling the EVF button, changing lenses, changing batteries, changing SD cards, setting the auto EVF feature in the menu to "off" then back "on", none of which worked.  It's a used EM-1 with a little over 1,500 shutter actuations.  Was ok...

I have been using Olympus Pen Epl5 for the last 2.5 years. As far as I know camera didn't have any physical damage but IS system is now not working and sensor will be replaced. Any idea what can cause such a problem?

I have an Olympus E-PL5 micro four thirds camera. Particularly in low light situations, when I view a shot through the LCD screen, the image is not the same as the picture appears in Playback mode after the shot is taken. The lighting is sometimes brighter, sometimes dimmer in Playback mode. And usually the colors are a little different. I've spoken with Olympus technical support and they first suggested I reset the camera to the factory settings. I also updated the firmware. This didn't make...

I've got an E-M1 and an E-PL5, and I normally shoot in Manual, but lately, I've played around with iAuto and I've noticed that it does a better job than I do at nailing incandescent lighting scenes.  It has a nice, warm, happy color, whereas the incandescent setting looks blah and the custom setting ends up looking yellow rather than warm.  What is iAuto doing that I'm not?  Can I replicate it in the manual settings? --Signature!

I might have to send my E-M1 off to get the strap lug repaired.  My backup is the E-PL5, but it has issues with shuttershock.  Did they ever release an update to fix this? --Signature!

Two questions. Pretty basic stuff, but I am very out of the loop on camera stuff these days and am getting ready for a trip where I am very much going to want to be using my Pen. First - When I bought my E-PL5 I remember a wide angle lens being available for it. I can't find the product. I really am going to want one soon. The M.Zuiko 17mm doesn't  seem to go wider than the default lens.  Second - How does this body compare with the currently available Pens? This is my second Pen body . I...

Hi There Group of GR users of which I'm not a part of, yet... I'm am seriously considering the GRII as my everyday, pocketable camera.  It ticks off all the boxes on my list of needs.  I just have a couple of q's for you. How does the GRII hold up to: 1. Shutter shock? (My E-PL5 rears its ugly head in this area, and it's really annoying) 2. No Stabilization, how on earth can a photo be taken with no stabilization (just kidding, none of the cameras I owned before 2009 had any...
