    I believed yours is the previous version of 5MDH. The current version with the smooth flap is a single-buckle design

    New Olympus OM-D E-M1 Firmware Released

    Took me less than 10 minutes including the downloading period. The actual firmware update I reckons only about 3-4 minutes (from the camera LCD screen status)

    E-M1, iPad, FL300R, 12-40, Mixed Lighting

    I agree with you on the Olympus Photo Sharing tool on iOS is a mixed bag. Sometimes it really get on my nerves when I forgot to switch of the wifi and my eye is on the viewfinder already but I can't press the shutter button.

    12-40 v 12-35 on the E-M1

    If I also own the 35-100, most probably I would stick with 12-35 rather than selling it just to buy the 12-40.

    OMD Owners: How do YOU focus?

    I'm old skool, so center focus thrugh the viewfinder, then recompose. If I pass the camera to my wife, she wil use the LCD screen to tap to focus.

    Neck Strap Length. Where does yours sit?

    I'm not sure what is the optimal height but I adjusted the strap to make sure the bottom of the camera doesn't touch my belt. I'd rather have the camera wobble on my stomach, at least I know there's some cushion on it... lolz!

    Domke or Crumpler?

    The Crumpler 5MDH is too big to hold all your gear listed and it has no dedicated pocket to store your tablet. I also don't like the separator for the new Crumpler. Still prefer the separator of the old Crumpler, more padding.

    Filters?...Other than UV

    After CPL, I used ND filters a lot. Either get a really good quality Vari ND or get at least 3-stops ND filter. I always bring out the CPL, 3-stops and 10-stops ND filters

    Samyang fisheye and focusing question.

    When I had the equivalent lens with NEX7, I just set it to f8 and starts shooting. Only when the subject is less than 3m, I starts to manually focus the lens

    Lightweight travel tripod....

    I'm using Sirui T-025 carbon fiber tripod. Good enough for my travelling as the folded length is only 30cm. When fully extended, agree with the other users that it is a bit short, but no complain with the build quality.

    Bags and more bags

    Bought a Domke F-10 after I sold Crumpler 5MDH which I had for more than a year. Inside I can keep the OM-D with Pan 12-35 mounted, and creates 2 partition for Pan 45-175 and Oly 45 1.8 with the small flash. The front compartment is big and I can even throw in the batt charger, blower, filters, etc.

    Advice on OM-D order / 12-50 kit lens

    Hi all. My 1st post here. I was in the same boat as you before, and I decided to get the body only while I saved up for the 12-35. Before I bought the 12-35, I used Oly 45 and Pan 14. Once I got hold of the 12-35, sold the pancake and use the Oly 45 if I need more reach. Never been happy and...
