    Micro 4/3 Olympus E-PM2

    I have not been able to find a thread specifically for images from the (now) ancient E-PM2, so I will start one. I'm sure that I am not the only person here who has one, and appreciates the strengths of this tiny gem. Please post shots from yours :) . Mine arrived (second hand) a couple of...

    More thoughts about the Olympus TG-6

    Back in September, 2017, I posted the following here: “Let's suppose for a moment that you've been invited to document an expedition where you might be exposed to all sorts of weather conditions and environmental hazards (except being underwater). You have to get the pictures, and the camera...

    Micro 4/3 Olympus E-PL8 AF

    Hi, the EPL-8 is currently my main m43 camera. The AF sometimes behaves a little odd. The AF when I have all the green boxes "active" sometimes latches on the wrong things. I mostly document my kids/family, and I just want things to be in focus. I set the release prio to focus. Only using...

    Initial impressions of the Olympus TG-6 Tough Camera

    Initial impressions of the Olympus TG6 When my Canon G12 died, I was bereft. It was my first serious digital camera; it served me faithfully for over a decade; it was my go-to camera when I ran the Airguns of Arizona blog for over 8 years, and it was my go-to camera when someone in the...

    Micro 4/3 Showcase Olympus 9-18mm f/4-5.6

    I find this lens to be rather underrated. I think the f/4-5.6 aperture scares some people away from it. I'll start off the showcase with some of my favorites images from this lens. 1 2 3 4 5 6

    Micro 4/3 Anybody got a spare Olympus M1 hotshoe cover?

    Just read the Olympus encyclical on "Weather resistance," and apparently the M1 isn't fully weather resistant unless the hot shoe cover is in place. Or perhaps someone can recommend a replacement that actually worked for them . . . there are lots out there . . . is there one that works well...

    I bought my Olympus OM-D E-M1 II Kit (F2.8 12-40 pro lens) back at the beginning of January this year, new from HDEW. Imagine my horror tonight when I realised the seal had torn & come free from the lens - so much for it being a Pro lens too! Have emailed HDEW as will be covered under...

    Micro 4/3 PanLeica 25 vs Olympus 25 vs Panasonic 20

    I just completed a comparison of the P14mm / PL15 / O17 / P12-32 in which I decided to hang on to the P14 for size and the PL15 for focal range, image quality/rendering, and a couple of handling points. One of those points is I'm getting use to bigger hoods that don't reverse and make it so I...

    Micro 4/3 Showcase OLYMPUS M.ZUIKO 17mm F1.8

    One of my all time favorites, I keep going between this, the Pan 14mm, and PanLeica 15mm. I'll probably pick up another 14mm, but this time I think I'll just keep the 17mm as well.

    Micro 4/3 Showcase OLYMPUS M.ZUIKO 25mm F1.8

    The Oly 25 is really nice and I might buy another. I have the PanLeica 25mm f/1.4 now, but Oly would be a better fit on my Pen F.

    @gordo has encouraged me to give a little overview over my impressions, so I'll oblige - also because I think the Olympus OM-D E-M5 III is a remarkable camera.

    The best camera for street photography?

    I formulated some time ago that after using some Fujifilms X100T + XT1, Leica Q, and Olympus PEN-F*, the ultimate camera or camera system for an enthusiast street photographer is the Fujifilm. I feel terrible about making this conclusion without having tested the very strong contenders, the...
