    Olympus US Drops EM1 to $999 and EM5-II to $899

    Nope, just as Carbonman pointed out, we no longer have the US "price tags" here. As a Canadian, I'm sad. Naturally, after the increase by Olympus Canada, Henry's upped their prices as well. I was teetering on a camera (EM-5 II) + lens (75 or 12-40) purchase, but now, it's totally out of the...

    Potentially bricked Olympus 45/1.8, what to do?

    I did, the Updater doesn't see the lens either. When I turn on the camera while connected to the PC with the lens mounted, the camera asks me to select a USB mode (normal). Then I open the camera Updater, which takes a longer-than-usual time to connect (not normal), which then shows only the...

    Potentially bricked Olympus 45/1.8, what to do?

    Last weekend, I ran a firmware update on my Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the Olympus 45/1.8. The camera update was successful and went without a hitch, however, when I was updating the lens firmware, the Olympus Camera Updater showed that the update was complete (while my camera screen still show the...

    We do this activity as a group, so I don't have the exact specs, however, here is how we go about it. 1. Everyone prefocuses on the paint. 2. Lights are turned out, sound is turned on (for the subwoofer), making the paint jump. 3. Everyone triggers their shutter (in Bulb) 4. One person...

    Adapted Lenses the way to go? / Recommendations

    Are adapted lenses the way to go? My opinion, yes, maybe, but only to some degree. When I got the E-M5, under my adapted lenses category, I just had a Pentax SMC M42 55/1.8. I used it for a bit, kinda liked the results; until I tried an Olympus 45/1.8. Boy, was it a world of a difference! My...

    Best 1-, 2-, 3-, and 4-lens kits for your Micro 4/3?

    Just got my Panny 14/2.5 in the mail yesterday - can't believe how small the OMD E-M5 looks with it! The lens is my first native prime - I'm loving its quick and silent focus! Based on the lenses I have right now, this is how I see myself using my gear: 1 lens: Olympus 12-50/3.5-6.3 (nice...

    Greetings, Fellow Shooters!

    Lucille: I haven't used any Carl Zeiss or Sony G class lenses on my A100, but the two lenses that I feel are highly under-appreciated and perform way beyond their price are the Sony 55-200mm and my personal favorite, the little Sony 50mm f/1.8. I haven't used my 55-200mm more than maybe six...

    anyone dumped their DSLR gear in favor of OM-D?

    My foray into Micro Four Thirds was initiated a couple of weeks back, starting with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the 12-50mm kit lens. My Sony Alpha stuff, consisting of the A100, a few lenses, a flash and other small (but important) accessories, will either be put up for sale, or end up being...
