    COMPLETED Lumix G 14mm f2.5

    I'm selling a Lumix G 14mm f2.5 that is about a year and a half old. Price: US$220.00 includes PayPal fees and shipping to verified PayPal address in the Continental US. Lens is in great shape, would rate it as Ex+. It's been used but I can't see any marks on it. Glass is clean with no...

    I have a Lumix G 20mm f1.7 ASPH lens for sale for $275 including PayPal fees and shipping in the US. The lens is about a year and a half old but is in excellent shape, no marks and glass is clean. A few wear marks on the front cap. -Thomas

    Is there more than one model VF-2 Viewfinder?

    What about the little flash (FL-LM1) that came with the E-PM1. It plugs in to the same connector and doesn't work on my E-P2. Anyone know if there is a firmware upgrade to make this work? -Thomas

    I saw in another thread that you got a E-PM1 camera to go with the grip :2thumbs: Good for you, enjoy. -Thomas

    Olympus E-PM1 Kit In Stock for $499 at B&H

    It has a rubbery look to it, but the match to the black body is pretty good IMO. There is a small logo on it, but it's hard to see what it says without looking closely. The camera itself has a more visible logo to start with :smile:. You might like Richard Franiec's grip better since that is...

    Olympus E-PM1 Kit In Stock for $499 at B&H

    Thanks. The grip has what they call "No-mess 3M adhesive" and you can take it off and put it back on. Shouldn't mess up the camera. Not sure what happens over time though. -Thomas

    Olympus E-PM1 Kit In Stock for $499 at B&H

    The camera is now complete - I added a Flipbac G2 grip and that improved the handling tremendously. And here is a picture from a trip to Harvard today: Enjoyed shooting with the camera a lot today. Focus is really snappy and exposures seemed pretty accurate most of the time. Had a little...

    My E-PM1 arrived. Comparison to E-PL2

    You need to get a grip. I put a Flipbac G2 grip on my E-PM1 today and it made a world of difference. It made the handling 3x more secure. One additional programmable button and a dedicated magnify button and this camera would be close to perfect for me. I'm wondering if you notice any...

    COMPLETED Olympus E-PL1 + m.Zuiko 14-42/3.5-5.6

    I bough the E-PL1 as an Olympus refurbished body earlier this summer. It's in great shape. The 14-42/3.5-5.6 kit zoom is the first version with the metal mount in excellent shape and includes a Tiffen UV filter. The camera comes with one battery, charger, strap, body and lens caps plus cables...

    COMPLETED Olympus E-P2 + m.Zuiko 17/2.8

    Bought new about 18 months ago. Camera is well used but not abused. Has some paint wear on the back and the side plus above the strap lugs (see pictures). Other than that it's in great shape. No issues with the 17, glass is clean and no marks on the lens. The camera comes with one battery...

    Improved EVF performance in new PENs

    I just got a new E-PM1 and tried the VF-2 from my old E-P2. I noticed some quite dramatic improvements when I used the finder on the E-PM1. In low light there was significantly less noise and even in brighter light there was less digital artifacts along sharp edges etc. Any one else notice...

    E-PM1 Pen Mini: First Impressions

    I would agree with this, unless you want the flip up screen from the E-PL3 or is willing to give up buttons etc. for the smallest possible camera as in the E-PM1. I think Olympus should have based the E-PL3 on the E-PL2 body and kept the flash and maybe added a flip up screen of 4:3...

    Olympus E-PM1 Kit In Stock for $499 at B&H

    Tried the 20/1.7 with the VF-2 EVF today and I was really surprised how much better the low-light performance of the EVF was on the E-PM1 compared to the E-P2 and E-PL1. E-P2 was worst with a lot of noise while the E-PM1 was almost completely clean in a dimly lit room. Another thing that...

    Olympus E-PM1 Kit In Stock for $499 at B&H

    I do have a 20/1.7 but I'm not planning on using it on the E-PM1. I'll most likely just stick to the 14/2.5 since I think the two make a perfect combo. Anyway, the 20/1.7 looks a bit big, but not overly so. Not the best pictures but they'll give you an idea. Would recommend a grip if you...

    VF-3 Road Test

    If your VF-2 is falling off, try putting some tape on the bottom of the piece that slides into the hot shoe. Makes for a much tighter fit. -Thomas

    Olympus E-PM1 Kit In Stock for $499 at B&H

    This picture shows how much smaller the E-PM1 is compared to the E-P2 and the E-PL1. As for fitting in a pocket without lens, it depends on how tight your pants are. Without lens it is still a bit deeper than the GRDIII, but would fit in a reasonably sized pocket. Personally I'd prefer a...

    Olympus E-PM1 Kit In Stock for $499 at B&H

    So it arrived and I'm very pleased with it so far. Size is great, and combined with a Lumix 14mm lens and 28mm finder it will be my pocket sized camera for now. Focusing seems fast and is very quite with the 14mm lens. Here is some size comparisons with two other pocketable cameras -...

    E-P3 Control wheel/button query

    I find the wheel/button implementation strange. The wheel is too small and whenever I try turning the wheel it seems like I always activate one of the buttons as well. This got me frustrated and I turned off the wheel-buttons which is kind of a shame since there are some useful functions on...

    VF2 - Is this normal?

    My VF-2 does the exact same thing - big difference between the way it displays the picture at shooting time vs review. I always thought I was expecting too much. It seems that it's mostly horizontal lines that show a lot of artifacts as the camera moves slightly. I compared to the EVF in the...

    'Show: Your Film Gear'

    I like that old Leica M3 camera - very classy. Had one of the black Pentax Spotmatic cameras but sold it long ago. That was a great camera. Shot these with the 55/1.8 Takumar lens in the Copenhagen train station many years ago. Just picked up a clean Leica M4-2 for when I feel like using...

    Which external optical viewfinder (OVF) are you using with your Micro 4/3 camera?

    I tried the Sigma VF-11 for the Panasonic 20 but I found the framing was way to tight and returned it. Much happier with the framing accuracy of the CV 28/35 mini-finder where the 35mm frames are a close match for distant subjects using the 20. Close up you get a little less in the frame than...

    EP3 First Impressions

    That's how I shoot my E-P2. I have the Cosina Voigtlander 28/35 mini finder. Works great - has 28mm and 35mm framelines so it works for the 14 (pretty accurate framing ) the 17 (a bit too tight) and the 20 (a bit loose). It's discontinued and pricey new from Cameraquest or if you can find one...

    E-P3 and G3 "compared"

    Nope, you got it right. They did let the camera choose so the comparisons are a bit strange with 800 vs 1600. There is still some value viewing the images on their own. -Thomas

    E-P3 and G3 "compared"

    Saw this ePhotozine comparison of the new Olympus E-P3 and Panasonic G3. Even thought the "comparison" leaves a lot to be desired (they didn't have much time so shot in JPEG and all auto which resulted in different ISOs/exposures and focus point seems different too) it does provide some useful...

    Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 Lens Hood?

    I'm using this wide-angle metal hood and it works great. The heavystar seller has a lot of metal hoods. I also bought a deeper vented 46mm hood for the 20mm. -Thomas

    My biggest issue? Am I going E-PL3 or PM1?

    Yeah, I agree that the lack of some real improvements in image quality is disappointing. After all, a better screen or faster focusing is nice but won't necessarily show up in the final image. The GH2 and G3 seems to be the only option if you want a step up in sensor performance. Too bad I...

    Which New Olympus Pen Design Do You Prefer?

    I voted for the E-PM1 based on size. A small grip would have been nice, but I'll wait and see how the handling is without one. Just hope the focus is faster even with the existing pancakes and that the high ISO performance is improved. -Thomas

    First images of the E-PM1

    I think this looks good. Slightly taller than the GF3 but with accessory shoe and also IBIS. Combined with the Lumix 14mm lens it could potentially replace my Ricoh GRDIII. -Thomas

    Olympus Market Share on the Rise in Japan

    What I find most interesting is that of all the mirror-less cameras on the list none have a built-in EVF. Seems like so many here complain about the lack of built-in EVF for any new Olympus PEN model that is announced or leaked. Just shows that what sells isn't always what the enthusiast crowd...

    COMPLETED Panasonic GF1 with 20/1.7 and 14/2.5

    Hi Ian, Well, the m43 system is now becoming the third line of cameras I use behind the main M9 and a Ricoh GRD 3 for a small carry everywhere solution. So it's time to sell what I don't use much to fund a new lens for the M9. I also have an E-P2 and the 17/2.8 plus an OM Macro lens. I got...

    GF1 body for $300.

    Shows up when I search for both GF1 (#4 on the list) and also when searching for Lumix GF1. I actually bought one Saturday and I'm waiting for a shipping confirmation. This is a great deal IMO, especially for someone that already has a few m43 lenses. I'm interested to see how the GF1 will...

    Panny 14mm almost here (US)

    Got this lens a couple of days ago and I really like the build of it. The barrel doesn't extend, like it does on the Olympus 17mm lens, so after attaching a 46mm wide-angle hood it feels very sturdy - one solid little lens that can take a bump or two. Optical performance seems pretty good in...

    Configure EP-2 display to only show exposure info?

    Hi, Is there a way to configure the E-P2 to only show the exposure info (shutterspeed, f-stop, ISO)? So far I can get it to show nothing or all the exposure info with all the rest of the settings cluttering the sides of the display. Same thing for the review - any way to get it to show the...

    New Panny 14mm f/2.5

    Looking at the German website it's pretty clear that the EU 399 price is the suggested retail price for the 20mm lens which is not what you would actually pay. I would expect the 14mm to be about the same as the 20 or maybe a little less. If it costs more than the 20 I think they will have a...

    is it just me?

    In my opinion it all depends and throwing more money at the problem (that is if it really is a problem) doesn't always give you better results. I think in general we pay way too much attention to the lenses we use or would like to have. So what if you could put a "better" lens on your camera...
