    Official Olympus EP5 image thread:))

    Note: The lighting for this shot was yukky fluorescent. The auto wb setting on my ep5 deals poorly with fluorescent, but the fluorescent wb setting handles it very nicely. The only hard point is remembering to set it back to auto wb afterwards.

    Already have the Olympus OM 50mm f1.8. Will I greatly benefit if I get the Olympus 45mm f1.8?

    After I bought the Sigma 60, my Oly 45 gathered dust. I ended up gifting it to my son, who is just getting into u4/3. Don't miss it at all.

    The ep5/vf4 combination is wonderful for manual focus work. I used an adapted 105/2.5 Nikkor for these snaps, and was able to place focus accurately without resorting to focus peaking.

    Bob, having a good time at his 80th birthday celebration. It was a dark room, and I was tempted to use my external flash, but the rig performed well without it. ep5 + 25/1.8 @ f/1.8 1/40s iso1600

    The ep5, Jeff. I rarely use the d700 these days, since my professional engagements have dried up.

    Whats the highest auto iso you have set for OMD cameras?

    I have max iso set at 1600 for my ep5. I shoot fast glass in aperture priority mode, and once it hits iso1600, the shutter speed begins to drop. I'd rather rely on image stabilization than nose reduction software.

    The Siggy 60 has become my favorite portrait lens, and thanks to its reach, a wonderful lens for stealth candids. This was taken from across the room at Starbucks.

    2 Prime Lens setup

    I have too many lenses... can't resist the affordable jewels made for u4/3. But my kits have boiled down to 3... One lens: The Oly 25/1.8 is sharp, contrasty, and versatile. It's replaced my 20/1.7, which is currently gathering dust. Two lenses: The Oly 25/1.8 and Sigma 60/2.8. The Siggy has...

    One lens to rule them all

    I love the renderings of my 20/1.7, and enjoy it on occasions when I have the time to be deliberate, but found it frustrating as a walk around lens. Too many missed or out of focus shots due to its slow/inaccurate focusing, particularly in low light where it's prone to hunt. I solved the...

    Baseball fever has hit the Bay area, with the Giants beginning a best of 5 series with the Washington Nationals. The Giants won game 1, 3 to 2. I used my Oly ep5 and Rokinon 7.5/3.5 fisheye to portray baseball fever. The distortion was intentional.

    Sweet combo, Morten. I'd buy a second u4/3 camera if it used the same battery as my ep5. Until then, I'll have to struggle along with my d700 as backup.

    Oly jpeg's: Tell me I'm not crazy for using them for a client

    Your sample images are proof that you didn't need RAW for this assignment. It might be a different story if you were shooting in low level mixed light, where you could untangle the light better with RAW. But in such cases, I think you'd used RAW as a matter of course. I love the jpgs...

    Is there a backup camera for ep5 with same battery?

    Thanks for the responses. I'm thinking a pl5 might be my best solution for a small backup. I like Oly jpgs, it has a tilt lcd, and I'm familiar with the operating system. Prices should drop once the pl7 starts shipping.

    I'm becoming addicted to the ep5's tele-converter setting. I took these stealth candids while waiting for my appointment with the barber, using the 45/1.8 @ f/2.2.
