    DSLR to Micro 4/3: Ever look back?

    Hi! I was a completley loyal Canon shooter (or so I thought :) ) and had progressed through the 20D, 40D and 5D MkII with a sweet setup of L-lenses. Then I read up on the EM-5 after having tried the Panasonic G3 that I loved. I convinced myself that I should buy the EM-5 due to the built in...

    Panasonic 12-35 still worth it?

    Hi! I started with a EM-5 and that 12-50 kit zoom. Soon I bought the 45mm f1.8 and it was in a legaue of it´s own in sharpnes compared to the zoom. However, when I upgraded from EM-5 to EM-1 I bought that with the 12-40 2.8 zoom. That combo is my prime combo and I use it for about 75-80% of all...

    Now Micro43 cameras are even more serious studiocameras - request support for tethered shooting now!

    Hi OzRay! Lightroom is an amazing program as well! Thats why I posted links to both that and Capture One Pro. I have switched to Capture One Pro and configured the workspace to my liking because I feel I get that little extra out of my EM-1 with that program. But then again I loose the smooth...

    Now Micro43 cameras are even more serious studiocameras - request support for tethered shooting now!

    Hi! The nice thing about being able to shoot straight into your RAW-software is that you can bring that softwares Power and Tools to the actual shooting session. I usually take a reference Picture with a greycard with the camera connected. The exposure lands in Capture One where I use the...

    Now Micro43 cameras are even more serious studiocameras - request support for tethered shooting now!

    This have been a terrific year at Photokina for us M43 shooters. One thing I personally have missed is the ability to plug my Olympus EM-1 to my computer with a USB-cable and control the camera from inside Capture One Pro. I used this feature quite a lot in a studio enviroment when I still had a...

    Olympus e-m5 and 12-40 pro focus problem

    This may be a stupid question, did you try ejecting the camera battery and re-insert it after a while? I had some wierd lockups on my EM-5 and that helped for me.

    Now you have the 12-40, which primes do you use and why?

    Hi! I just shot a friends wedding and I had the 12-40, the 45 1.8, a Voigtländer 17,5 f0.95 and the 75 mm f1.8 with me. As I looked through my absurd amount of pictures from the wedding it occured to me that I should take stock of how much each lense was used. Being a happy amateur I had to...

    help dropped e-m10

    Sorry to hear it. The shutter and sensor mechanics in Olympus cameras are small wonders of engineering what with the sensor hovering in an electromagnetical cradle and all. I would seriously consider leaving it with Olympus for service, what´s to say you only got a problem with the shutter? Good...

    I am rather frustrated with M4/3 (and other stuff as well)

    Hi! I used to have GAS as well, I had a Canon 5D MkII and five lenses, three of which were L-lenses and by that definition, not cheap. I bought a OM-D Em5 to get a smaller, lighter camera and befor I knew it, i started to buy lenses for that system. In my case, I realised that I got great...

    Fuji needs to pack Iridient or Photo Ninja with their cameras!

    By the way, every time there is a new version of a good RAW-converter, be it Lightroom, Capture One Pro or any other, it is usually a good idea to upgrade since the rendering enginge and algorithms keep getting refined, resulting in crisper Pictures with less noise and more spanking good colors...

    Fuji needs to pack Iridient or Photo Ninja with their cameras!

    Hi! Do I risk being stamped as a traitor here? I tried the Fuji XT1 this weekend at a convent and I have to tell you guys, had I not already bought myself an EM-1 with that glorious 12-40 zoom I would probably own a Fuji by now. As it stands I am so pleased with my Olympus that I'm not leaving...

    Hi! I have an EM-1 and are looking for legacy glass. How would you rate the quality of the optics compared to your Olympus lenses? If you focus correctly, is it sharp enough?

    Have anyone taken pictures with Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50-200/2,8-3,5 SWD and the EM-1?

    Hi! It´s interesting to see I am not alone with these questions. When I bought the EM-5 to use as my every day camera and as a second camera to my Canon 5D MkII, I relished in the compact size and the small weight. After using the Olympus for about 6 months I ended up selling off my 5D and...

    Have anyone taken pictures with Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50-200/2,8-3,5 SWD and the EM-1?

    I guess many of us Olympus shooters are interested in a telezoom with a good reach. There was a zoom for Olympus 43 cameras called Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50-200/2,8-3,5 SWD and in the latest version it focused faster due to a new SWD-construction. This was the zoom I was looking to get when...

    Taking a day off to pretend to be a wedding photographer.

    Yes, I really like how the guys with the big guns are impressed when they see the result from a m43-camera. Seems to me that apart from the bokeh that admittedly is fantastic with a full fram Canon / Nikon and an expensiv 50mm f1.2 you really are able to get the result you wish for with a...

    Thank you! I read somwhere in this thread that the lens is very good for other motives than pure macro and I agree. The final picture of Fia, the danish/swedish farmdog is shot wide open at 2.8 with focus set on the eye. It really ia a pinsharp lens even wide open. Amazing! -Stefan

    Hi! I understand exactly how you feel, I bought the kit with the EM-1 and the 12 - 40 lens. It is an Amazing lens that behaves very well optically. It is however a bit on the Heavy side. Before you start selling off your lenses (with a loss I might add) you really need to see how you´re using...
