I'm actually quite happy with this camera overall, especially with the M.Zuiko 25mm f1.8 on it, but we have active kids and the AF is just not cutting it. I wind up using AF-S, because the focus lock is so unreliable that AF-C usually means it will use a bad lock for the whole sequence -- refocusing on every shot gives better odds that it will get a good lock for at least one of them. Since this is an older, entry-level camera, I assume that its AF performance is pretty far down the scale,...

The Olympus E-PM2 has a scene mode and many different scenes. The only one I really use is panorama, but each time when I go from into the scene mode, the camera always starts with the same scene order and I have to to scroll through many scenes before getting to panorama. Is there a way to "customize" the order of the scenes or to only have a few selected scenes ? Thanks
I recently changed from e-pm2 to GX85. Since I shoot exclusive RAW, I rely on lens profile for correction. But when I loaded the files into LR, it was unable to locate a matching profile and there is none even when I tried manually. BTW, I am using LR CC. Didn't have this issue with e-pm2. Is there something I need to set in the camera?
I have an e-pm2 that I am quite satisfied with. This system is mainly used for travel where size is extremely important. Has recent progress in sensor and processing power made it worthwhile to upgrade? I am primarily interested in landscape/architecture. AF speed is not that important to me. However, IQ under moderate high ISO (~ISO 1600) is important.
I was out shooting earlier tonight with my Oly E-PM2 and my new Panasonic 12-32. About 80 shots in I clicked the shutter, and the shutter curtain closed and the camera powered off. Tried to turn the camera on again, and the camera promptly turned itself off again. I pulled off the lens and found that the shutter was stuck closed. When I try to turn the camera on, the LCD illuminates briefly, but then the sensor IS mechanism resets to home and the camera shuts off again, the shutter remaining...

I've been using an E-PM2 for a good while now, and was just curious if it was worth upgrading to the E-M10 Mark II for the viewfinder? The VF-4 seems like an awful lot of money for a viewfinder, when you get so much more for switching bodies. I've only been composing via screen the whole time, and was just curious how much of a difference an EVF makes. As far as I can see, image quality is mostly similar, so it's really down to shooting experience. I know there's the control dials and the...

I started getting into micro 4/3 with a Panasonic GF3 which came with a Panasonic 14-42 kit lens. When I set the lens at the wide end at 14mm, I could capture a pretty wide view. I just got a used Olympus E-PM2 and added my Panasonic 14-42 to it, but the field of view is significantly narrower than before, almost 50% of what I could see with my GF3. In the E-PM2, there is a Scene mode called "Wide Angle" which is meant for Olympus wide angle lenses. When I switched to this Wide Angle...
In this recent thread, there was some talk about using RawDigger and FastRAWViewer to get a more accurate report on actual RAW exposure values: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/58298914 I have looked at these two programs, and while I can see how FRV can allow more accurate view of the RAW data for bracketed shots, I am not sure that it will improve my results where I am not bracketing, and I'm reluctant to introduce more steps into my workflow, as I'm always a year or more behind...
