I am so frustrated with my OM-Ds that I’m ready to sell everything and buy a Canon 6D to go with my old reliable 5D and just give up on building a compact, lightweight system. It seems as if almost every time I use the OM-Ds, some new problems jump up to hit me in the face. I am not a member of the computer generation, so menu-diving is next thing to rocket science for me. I shot film for 35 years, 30 of them as a commercial photographer. I shot mostly transparency film in all sizes, used an incident meter, and had a very precise exposure technique. I took my readings, set the shutter speed and aperture, brought the camera to my face, focused, and took the picture. The camera did not get in the way of my photography. I moved from Olympus OMs to the Canon EOS system in 1993 because aging eyes required autofocus. From there, it was relatively easy to move into Canon digital. The menus were not too difficult, and with most things, I could simply set it and forget it. Not so the OM-D. My first OM-D was bought new almost a year ago. After quite a bit of struggle, I felt I had it pretty well sorted out. Then, last week I bought a second body in like-new condition with fewer than 1500 clicks from a fellow forum member. I then attempted to set up both cameras so that their workings would be identical. Yesterday, I worked a wedding as the second shooter. Both cameras exhibited behavior I had never seen before. Most of the time, when I bought either camera up to my eye, the viewfinder gave me a brief magnified view, then switched to the normal view – this without me touching any buttons. This has never happened before, and I have no idea what is causing it. Then later, as the light began to fail, I turned on Live View Boost so I could see what I was focusing on. It did not work on either camera. I had to give up on the OM-Ds altogether and use my Canon, which as always, delivered the goods. I’m leaving this Saturday for a week-long assignment in El Salvador. This is the kind of thing for which I switched to M4/3s. I certainly don’t want to carry the weight of even a minimal Canon system, yet, I don’t feel I can trust the OM-Ds. And they are such incredible battery-hogs! Please forgive the long rant. If anyone can offer helpful suggestions, I will appreciate it.
