I didn't know you could de-fish! When you take the pictures in live view, does it show you the fish eye view? It's only for the jpgs? No raw?
The in-camera defish is only available when using the Olympus 8mm Pro FE, and only with the E-M1 II, III, X, and the E-M5 III. Both the fisheye and the rectilinear views are available in live view through the EVF and on the LCD screen. I have the Fisheye/Rectilinear assigned to an fn button so I can toggle between views while shooting. This versatile f/1.8 lens is my go to lens for anything ultra wide, and for museums and cathedrals. The in-camera rectilinear images are switchable from 5.5mm, to 7mm, to 9mm.

The defish in camera produces a JPEG only, the raw is still fisheye. However, if you use the Olympus Workspace software for converting the .orf file, the conversion to rectilinear is automatic and actually mirrors the JPEG almost exactly.

I'll have more to say about this in-depth soonish. But if anyone tries to suggest that your 5iii cant possibly shoot fast action, tell them its nonsense.

I'm starting to get bummed... my trip to London is more than likely going to get canceled. I was hoping to shoot a TON with the new camera. I've got a few new (and returned to me) lenses. I just bought a 12mm F/2 off of ebay... I got a 17 f/1.8 recently, and it's a great little lens. I had given a friend my original E-M5 with a 40-150 f/4-5.6, and man, that lens is way better than it has any right to be for the $100 I paid for it.

A couple recent shots. The bluebonnets are from yesterday, RAW processed with Olympus Workspace (I'm not very experienced with doing much post processing). The fence pic is JPEG straight out of the camera. I like the colors anyway, so why futz with it?

The fence was shot (if you can't see the EXIF info) with the 40-150 f/4-5.6 el-cheapo lens. It's way better than it should be for the $105 I spent on it a few years back.

I like this camera. A lot. It could be built out of scotch-guarded paper machete for all i care. It just works.

Jason they're a beautiful set.
Didn't realise you were Aussie and I was scrolling down the page and thought this has to be Australia. Even the gum trees are not uncommon overseas.
But there's something about Aussie landscape that is undeniably Australia.

I'd love a 3, but if it came to a choice be hard to not go for an EM1 again.
But I love my EM5II.
I gather focus issues aren't what they used to be with the ver 1 & 2 EM5

Yes, a fantastic set of photos.
Could you possibly provide lens details please (as I cannot see the Exif data)?
Thanks, B.

Em5iii made it's debut as my travel camera at "Hobbiton" (New Zealand). Travelling for a week it a campervan, it met it's main design criteria for me - USB charging - admirably, and I've survived on one battery. And a kit fits in a tiny bag and weighs well under 2kg, which was important for the flight. Could have been smaller too, as I opted to take the 12-60PL as a weatherproofed general purpose lens. The PL15 and Oly 40-150mm kit lens were also in the bag , and the 12-32 on the body for tiny-ness.

Plus, no tripod makes Ibis very very useful at times......

I'm not home yet, so all jpegs with contrast etc added in snapseed. I shot via a close watch on the histogram, unsure of how much highlight headroom exists. I haven't yet worked out how to have histogram AND level displayed in the EVF, lol.

Works good in low light. 1600 ISO. Great image stabilization. Works well with Panny lens, but sure to turn off IS on lens.
Beautiful image but why do you turn off IS? I infer because it won't work anyway on an Oly (?)
Thank you and all the best!

My trip to England got cancelled too -- can you take a "vacation" in Austin? See with the eyes of a vacationer? I have done that and it opens my eyes to things, small or large, I have not seen previously. And it does have a feel of being in a new place at times :)

Similar weight and size to an Em10 but better grip, full weathersealing and Em1ii image quality.
