    Just got one of these over the weekend, and since Amin has just created a thread for the Panasonic equivalent, I thought I'd post up some of my test shots from the Olympus. Mounted on my EPM1 and 14-42mm rii, all shot at the wide end and cropped a little for straightening.

    Just when I convince myself it's time to upgrade the E-PM1, it does this.....

    Nice Shot!

    Although I bet a new camera could do that too! :biggrin:

    Thanks, and I'm sure you're right, a new camera most likely would do that, but new glass might do it differently. I'm not one who chases the ultimate in IQ and when the E-PM1 get's it right I'm more than happy with the results. The problem is that mine doesn't seem to get it right as often as I'd like, so lately I've giving some serious thought into upgrading it. But I just know that if I can squeeze a bit more consistency out of the little Oly, I'll be happy with it and I can concentrate on building up my lens collection. I'm so close to loving this little camera but I just need to learn how to get the best from it. :thumbup:

    Very nice picture. Could you tell me the aperture and speed setting for this photo? I got a wcon-p01 as well and I want to take some landscape pictures with it.

    Thank You. The camera was in Aperture mode set to f/8, ISO 400, which gave me a shutter speed of 1/2000. I could have got away with a lower ISO but I'm experimenting with it at the moment to learn how to get more consistent results from it.

    Anyone try the converter on the Oly 14-42mm EZ lens? It has the same filter thread...

    The converter doesn't fit via the filter thread, you remove the ring at the tip of the lens to reveal a bayonet, and it attaches to that. The EZ doesn't have it (as far as I know).
