THANK YOU for posting this! This is a feature that I have used on my Nikon bodies with my Nikkor AIS MF lenses since the D700 had it back in 2009. It was a feature very much missed on my original EM1's and G9 and I was not aware the newer Olympus bodies had this. It was so easy to simply bush a button the turn a dial to choose from the 10 preset lenses, and I see that Olympus has also allowed 10 lens setting to be stored. My EM1 MKIII will (finally) be here on Monday and this is one of the first settings I will set up as I will use a couple of the AIS lenses, the 50mm f1.2 and 105mm f2.5 for portraits, and the Laowa 7.5mm f2 for landscapes with the new body.The E-m1 mark II/III, E-m1x, and E-m5 mark III have a menu (cogs -> H1 in the E-m5 mark III) that allows to you to save up to 10 lenses and select from it later. It asks for the lens name, aperture value, and focal length. The name and focal length are copied into the EXIF information. This way, you can identify pictures later taken with a given manual lens, and also setup the proper IBIS value.
From my post above, a direct quote from the manual: "[Lens Info Settings] can be assigned to a button. The button can then be used to recall lens info, for example after lenses are exchanged". So this can be assigned to a button is the way I read it?Yes, this is a very useful function indeed (that I had forgotten... I'll try to use it as I just bought a 7artisans 35 mm f/1.2 lens)
Especially with IBIS.
Too bad there's no easy way to access it (easier than getting into H1 menu, or to use a Fn button for this).
Yes, that what I meant by "or use a Fn button for this".From my post above, a direct quote from the manual: "[Lens Info Settings] can be assigned to a button. The button can then be used to recall lens info, for example after lenses are exchanged". So this can be assigned to a button is the way I read it?
No, no MyMenu option yet (not sure I'll get it).Understand, limited buttons and C postion on the EM5.3. Does your EM5.3 have the My Menu option, you could put it there? If not maybe in the next FW upgrade.
My GM5 has "virtual buttons" on screen. And a custom quick menu.It would be great if we could customize items to appear in the SCP menu, as many of those that appear I have never used or never will. My Sony A7 has a FN button option that brings up a 10 slot user-selectable SCP like menu and I use this shortcut all the time, a real timesaver.
Yes! I have mine assigned to the "outie" button on the front of my E-M1.2. (I have the "innie" button assigned to focus peaking.)So this [selecting manual lenses] can be assigned to a button is the way I read it?
